Modern Masters and Movements

American Modern Dance was born during the turn of the 20th Century, when a number of dance makers rebelled against the two forms of dance that were prevalent at the time, ballet and vaudeville. In a rare chronological festival, Artistic Director, Jean Isaacs curates a living history of dance, organized around ten evenings that follow the development of modern dance in the United States, from the early 20th Century to today. Through live performances, films, workshops, and classes, San Diego audiences will have an opportunity to travel through 100 years of dance in just ten days.

Modern Masters and Movements, celebrates the groundbreaking work of the dance pioneers through the lens of San Diego based artists, as they navigate today's world, incorporating the past, present, and future of modern dance.

All Tickets: $20. Festival Pass: $100 for ALL 10 evenings.
(Tickets will be held at Will Call.)
