SF Ethnic Dance Festival
World Arts West plays a crucial role in California's cultural ecology. Every great city has important museums, operas and orchestras, but few of the world's great cities have a World Arts West. It is hard to imagine San Francisco without it. The San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival encapsulates who we are better than any other event in the Bay Area. Our greatness lies in our diversity. And nowhere is our diversity better embodied than in the Bay Area's rich and varied dance traditions. The thousands of artists we work with are the heart and soul of the San Francisco Bay Area, and serve as both cultural ambassadors and catalysts for cross-cultural innovation.
