San Diego's dance scene is as diverse as the region. You’ll find every kind of dance; from classical, contemporary, ballet, modern jazz, hip-hop, or ethnic, local dance companies provide a wide spectrum of movement, choreography and excitement. San Diego dancers are eager to step outside the studio to present dance in unusual places. From site-specific performances on the trolley to hip-hop in the streets, San Diego knows how to dance.

The establishment of Dance Place San Diego at NTC Promenade, in association with presenting organizations, brings high-quality national and international companies to San Diego. There’s hardly a weekend that goes by without an exciting dance performance on a local stage, theatre or at a neighborhood festival.

Those looking to move and groove themselves will find plenty of places throughout San Diego. Nightclubs in the Gaslamp Quarter are plentiful with celebrity DJs and live bands keeping the crowd moving. And if you want to dance in your flip flops and shorts, bars and clubs along Pacific Beach’s Grand and Garnet avenues offer a lively and more casual atmosphere. For a dinner and dance package, try Humphrey’s Backstage Live on Shelter Island offering dinner packages, a 30-day calendar of live music and plenty of room on the dance floor. 

Whether you’re looking to be inspired, entertained or participate in the visceral art of dance, you’ll find it in San Diego.
