Featuring new work by SRJC's dance company (TDC) and student choreographers. Also featuring work form Bay Area dance companies: Farrah McAdam and Co., Visceral Roots Dance Company, Natasha Carlitz Dance Ensemble, Cosmos Collective, SCC Dance, Aleño Dance Project, and PlayGROUND Dance Collective. 

The second annual SRJC Community Dance Festival provides a place for community-building, artistic nourishment, exquisite dance presentations, and dance education for all ages, abilities, and demographics. Through diverse stage performances, SRJCCDF strives to bring awareness to the extensive artistic and cultural dance community of the city of Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, and their reputation as a hub for the art of dance.  Artists participating in the SRJCCDF create complex, multi-layered, high caliber artistic work and the dance festival provides opportunities for artists to connect with other artists outside their own cultures to engage in innovative collaborations.

Directed by Casandra Hillman and Tanya Knippelmeir, Casandra says that the reason she loves the Community Dance Festival is because “it showcases the dancer and is all about expressing and sharing the art of dance, not about competition or being the best”.  Tanya is overjoyed and inspired by “seeing what Sonoma County's dance schools and companies bring to the table.  They are all so diverse: in age, genre, culture, music, technique, and emotion, yet the love of dance is universal in all the performers.  It's thrilling!".

SRJCCDF supports dance artists by providing a safe performance space, videos and photos for their marketing needs and grant applications, artist referrals, production advice, artist resources and other forms of support for our beloved cultural artists to thrive.


SRJC Dance Program, as a presenting and educational organization, acknowledges that we hold our performances on the traditional territories of the Pomo nation.
