Join us for an extra special evening on Saturday, July 8 as the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival makes its big debut at the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House. We’ve reserved a block of premiere center orchestra seats just for our Rhythm & Motion tribe, their families and guests at a discounted price. Let’s gather together during this momentous occasion to celebrate many of the world music and dance forms that inspire us in our Rhythm & Motion classes every day.
