Central Coast Follies

Introducing the Central Coast Follies … a fun, fantastic, fabulous group of women and men who love to dance and sing while raising funds for meaningful causes. This year’s theme, “A Little Bit OFF…BROADWAY” salutes the musicals of the on- and off-Broadway stage. Join us, and our guest performers, as we wind our way from moving ballads to high-energy tap and jazz numbers.


The Central Coast Follies was born in 2003, inspired by Emily McGinn and a group of community-minded, compassionate and energetic vintage dancers who wanted to perform. Our director/choreographer, Jason Sumabat, suggested a benefit performance for a worthy cause; and member Dixie Parker suggested the group adopt Parkinson’s Disease research. Over the past fifteen years, with unswerving community support, the Central Coast Follies has donated $369,000 to the Parkinson Alliance.


Recognizing a significant need in our local community, we have expanded our focus and chosen to tackle the issue of food insecurity, partnering with the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo. We share in their vision “that every person in the county has adequate access to nutritious food.”


Net proceeds from our performances will benefit the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo, as well as our long time beneficiary, Parkinson’s Disease research.
