As we get closer to our annual Izzies celebration of our extraordinarily talented dance community, we’d like to ask you for your assistance. Please tell us the names of those who have passed this last viewing season (Sept 1, 2016, through August 31, 2017), both locally and internationally, that we should be honoring for our ‘In Memoriam’ part of the ceremony. This list of names includes artists, designers, composers, choreographers, dancers, writers, and others who have contributed to our world of dance.
Thank you all for your knowledgeable and collective input!
After serving the Bay Area dance community since 1975 SF Dancewear is closing its doors. Their building has been sold and the owners are choosing to retire. THANK YOU for so many years of keeping us all in shoes and tights, leotards and briefs. We appreciate you as an important member of our community ❤️ You will be missed!
The press release is almost complete and we’re getting excited. Bay Area dance has never looked better! #theizzies
