SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts presents:

West WaVE DAnce Festival - 25th anniversary

A Multi-day Dance Festival

September 14 - 18, 2016 on Z Space's Main Stage

West Wave Dance Festival, held in San Francisco each year, is a choreography showcase presented in a shared program format. West Wave’s mission is to unite Bay Area dance by bringing together veteran and newly-established choreographers from all cultures and disciplines, in and beyond the Bay Area, and provide them an opportunity to present work in a professional venue in order to experiment, develop and refine repertories, and build audiences without the burden of self-producing.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary the public was called on to nominate local dance artists who were innovative and had made an impact on the San Francisco Bay Area Dance community. The nominated artists were invited to submit and twenty-five artists were then chosen to receive a residency at SAFEhouse Arts to create a world premiere for this year’s festival.
