Updates and performance calendar

MFDP|SF is completing its 17th season of making and sharing dance in the Bay Area and internationally. This year dancers toured to Lima, Peru and performed with Ballet San Marcos and held workshops at Universidad Mayor Nacional de San Marcos.

In addition to holding its annual open air dance festival in San Francisco, Dancing in the Park, MFDP|SF mentors 10 young dance makers during its 6 month long Young Choreographer's Forum.

Now in its 4th year, Mark Foehringer's Nutcracker Sweets has quickly become part of the San Francisco holiday tradition receiving rave reviews from dance critics and audiences alike.

On February first, MFDP|SF launched its youth training program Conservatory for Contemporary Dance in Mountain View and San Jose, CA. This program focuses on preparing young dancers for the next step in the dance future.
