Trolley Dances began in 1997 as a production of Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater. Since that time it has spread to include San Francisco (2004), Stockton (2011) and, now, Riverside (2012). Although the topography, diversity and culture of each city may differ, each location retains SDDT’s thematic approach of creating original, site-specific work along the local trolley line.

Attracting over 3000 patrons throughout the state each year, the Trolley Dances series highlights the unique diversity of each city, promoting local choreographers. Dances have taken place on balconies and stairs, in libraries, food stores, swimming pools, fountains, parking structures, rooftops, and other unlikely sites.
