As a part of the Nationwide Event sponsored by local theaters, San Diego Civic Dance Association Invites You To a Very Special Evening of Dance in the beautiful and historic Casa del Prado Theatre in Balboa Park.

San Diego Civic Dance Companies performing Encore favorites from their critically acclaimed Collage 2017 “Joy” and previews of Collage 2018 “Be Bold”

Featuring Daniel Lewis/José Limón's “Beethoven Sextet” and new work by Kenji Igus, Danny Gardner, Melissa Adao, Jennifer Eason, and  Mary Allison Dunsmore along with Collage 2017 favorites from Maud Arnold (Syncopated Ladies) & Chukwudi Hodge (International drumming artist).

Collage features various dance styles such as tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, modern and musical theater. 
Along with breathtaking costumes, imaginative set pieces and gorgeous theatrical lighting, our professionally trained dancers deliver a show that is certain to impress. Suitable for all ages.

If you have not yet had the pleasure of seeing the Civic Dance Companies perform, be prepared to have your socks knocked off.  Our dancers train for years in the Park and Rec program and Company is truly a dance conservatory type environment.

When Mia Michaels of "So You Think You Can Dance" came down to work with the dancers recently, she put it best: "I work with dancers all over the world, it is very rare that they can pick up my hardest combinations...your dancers did.I am truly impressed"

"I was inspired daily by the passion, work ethic and talent of this diverse group of dancers. I am excited to follow them all and see where they take their dancing and their lives! Art saves lives!" ~Maud Arnold, Syncopated Ladies

Rave reviews for Collage!

I want to take a moment to tell you how impressed have been with the San Diego Civic Dance Company. The last performance really knocked my socks off.  The quality and variety of the work that was put on stage is a tremendous testament to your vision and the clear qualifications of your teachers and choreographers.  Bravo! ~ John Malashock, Malashock Dance

Celebrating over 70 years of Dance Education in San Diego. Founded in 1942, San Diego Civic Dance Arts has introduced hundreds of thousands of citizens to the art form of dance and has been lauded as the standard for which other city-wide dance programs nationwide measure themselves. As part of the City's Park and Recreation Department, San Diego Civic Dance Arts provides affordable dance training at 22 Recreation Centers throughout San Diego County as well as in several dance facilities in Balboa Park. With over 3,200 students enrolled, the program provides our students, ages 3 to Senior Citizen, the chance to participate in a wide variety of classes such as tap, jazz, ballet, modern, irish, musical theater, creative movement, hip hop, Hawaiian and even Zumba®. San Diego Civic Dance Arts is a high quality accessible program which, thanks to the City of San Diego's low income fee waiver program, ensures that anyone who wishes to dance in San Diego is able to do so.

Unique to the program, each spring brings workshops for advanced level, audition only Companies. San Diego Civic Dance Arts Companies provide advanced level training and performance opportunities. All four companies perform in various events year round, representing the City of San Diego. Many of our advanced level dancers have gone on to successful careers in dance and the arts.

Affordable one week Summer Camps are available to dancers ages 6-17 years, with a showcase performance at the end of each week. Also available are our Adult workshop (full convention-style day of dance for Adults and Seniors)and our pre-dancer camp for ages 3-5 years.

With the support of San Diego Civic Dance Association, all of our students are given many different performance opportunities, such as December Nights, our critically acclaimed dance Collage in the spring, Production Finales as well as the highly anticipated Yearly Recitals held at the beautiful Casa Del Prado Theater in historic Balboa Park.

San Diego Civic Dance Association

Mission Statement: Our mission is to support and promote a premiere dance arts program and an appreciation of the arts, in cooperation with the San Diego Park and Recreation Department Dance Arts Program.

San Diego Civic Dance Association is a non-profit, all volunteer, public benefit organization. Every year, our dedicated volunteers give over 25,000 hours of their time to support the many programs of the City of San Diego's Civic Dance Arts program. While the City fee covers the cost of the dance classes, each year our hardworking volunteers work to raise over $180,000 to cover the costs of our performances and additional programs.

San Diego Civic Dance Association funds and produces performance opportunities for dancers taking classes with the City program. From Recitals, Collage, December Nights, Dance Fair and many more, our pledge is to provide a complete education and performance experience for our dance community.

In addition to performance opportunities, SDCDA funds financial aid, merit scholarships, college scholarships, costume assistance as well as specialty dance training opportunities for both dancer and teachers alike. Our pledge is to build and maintain a strong dance program that supports all of our students and teachers, no matter their age or ability level.
