DIMENSIONS DANCE THEATER (DDT) is celebrating a legacy of 45 years as a dance company and a school, and is one of the Bay Area's preeminent professional dance institutions, known for its presentations of traditional and contemporary choreography drawn from African, Caribbean, jazz and modern dance idioms. We provide year round after school and in school classes. Our mission is to create, perform and teach dance that reflects the lives and historical experiences of the African Diaspora. Our youth programming through Rites of Passage (ROP) and Dimensions Extensions Dance Ensemble supports a community-based dance education program for under-served youth ages 8-18yrs that brings the transformative power of the arts through creative experience and artistic expression. This is how we deepen an understanding and appreciation of a rich cultural heritage that helps youth discover their potential.
