Explore Dance in San Diego

San Diego has long had a diverse and rich dance scene. You'll find classical, contemporary, ballet, modern jazz, hip-hop, and ethnic as our acclaimed dance companies provide a wide spectrum of movement, choreography and truly innovative performance. 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.

Dance Place San Diego at NTC Promenade, together with various 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, or at a theater or 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 high-energy crowds on the dance floor. And if you want to dance in flip flops and shorts, bars and clubs along Pacific Beach's Grand and Garnet Avenues offer a lively, laid back atmosphere.

For a dinner and dance package, try Humphrey's Backstage Live on Shelter Island, which offers 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 art of dance, you'll find it in San Diego.
