What's happening at the White Box?

White Box



We've started a partnership with The American History Theater, and by combining resources we've made improvements to the technical capacity of our performance space, White Box Live Arts.

The American History Theater strives to raise awareness for and honor those who have served and currently serve in our nation's armed forces. Through theater and stage production, AHT is able to deliver its' message in a unique and meaningful manner.

Make sure to check out their website and upcoming shows - The Diary of Anne Frank is happening NOW!


About San Diego Dance Theater

Founded in 1972 as a 501(c)3 professional company, the San Diego Dance Theater (SDDT) has for 45 years enriched the cultural life of San Diego through countless dance concerts and training for young dancers. Jean Isaacs was appointed Artistic Director in 1997 and under her direction, SDDT has earned its reputation as a company of fully-professional dancers committed to unconventional and deeply courageous programming which expands access to the stage for dancers of many nationalities, races, ages, and physical abilities. We are also known for our cross-border projects, our site-specific Trolley Dances, our summer dance workshops, and for the sheer beauty of our dancers.
Create and perform intelligent dances that breathe life into the people of our region and beyond. Provide access to the viewing, training in, and dancing of Isaacs' dances by people representing diversity of all kinds.
Core Values
The dances created have to be gorgeous and very physical.
They have to inspire kinetic empathy in the viewers, who must feel as though they could jump inside the dancers' skin.
They have to reflect the world as it is now: urban, edgy, moving towards gender equality, deeply human, and danced by people of varied sizes, colors and background, and finally these dances help me understand a shift in myself: they reveal to me something I have not figured out before.
