ConfiDANCE! is a free weekly dance and movement class for children ages 6-9 in our local neighborhood! The class uses movement based exercises and games to build important life skills like self-confidence, teamwork, leadership and self-expression. Drawing froma wide range of dance techniques, ConfiDANCE! encourages a child’s development of coordination and musicality while developing a sense of accomplishment, achievement, and self-worth.

This class is free to all students due in large part to a generous grant by the Rotary Club of SF. If you wish to help sponsor this class, we are accepting donations that support our goal of free dance programming for children in San Francisco. Please reach out to Community Engagement Manager, Benjamin Warner at we know the children will appreciate your support!
