Event Description

Micaya is pleased to present the 20thAnniversary of the San Francisco International Hip Hop DanceFest (SFIHHDF), featuring groundbreaking hip-hop performances from 14 dance companies from around the globe.

 

In 1993, dancer, choreographer, teacher, and producer Micaya began producing grassroots hip-hop dance shows in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. Those shows quickly sold out, and led up to the creation of the first ever SFIHHDF in 1999 at Theatre Artaud. Micaya’s vision was to move hip-hop dance from the street and studio onto a proscenium stage, and to create a festival that honored both the artistry and diversity of hip-hop dance in a non-competitive environment.  Now presented at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, the festival attracts companies from all over the globe, and has firmly placed San Francisco on the map as a premier presenter of hip-hop dance.

 

Under the umbrella of hip hop, this year’s festival showcases work that draws variously from b-boying, jazz, modern, waacking, locking, krump, house, popping, and more. The 2018 festival welcomes international artists from London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Vietnam. Stateside, SFIHDDF hosts dancers from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Murfreesboro, TN and locally from Oakland, San Francisco, San Mateo, Vacaville, and Hayward. More than 100 individuals will take the stage at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre mixing skillfulness with artistry and storytelling.
