Jul 16 | Peninsula International Dance Festival

Peninsula Ballet Theatre Executive Director, Christine Leslie, said, “The launch of the Peninsula International Dance Festival is a very exciting new initiative as part of our expanded mission to connect with more community residents on the greater Peninsula. Five years ago, we began exploring the addition of hip-hop to our classical ballet offerings and it has been a huge success, attracting a new audience to our theater. Presenting an international dance festival is an extension of the many diverse dance classes that are offered weekly in our five ballet studios at the Peninsula Ballet Theatre center. This is also our way of connecting with and proudly showcasing the extraordinary world dance and music talent in the Bay Area. We are very enthusiastic about the future and look forward to sharing this new festival with the public.”

Carlos Carvajal, Peninsula Ballet Theatre’s Artistic Director Emeritus and revered Bay Area dance leader said: “The Bay Area is unique in the entire world because of the racial and cultural diversity that has enabled us to produce an international festival of such high quality in which all of the participants, including the very best teachers and dancers, live in the immediate area. This is truly a cultural jewel which expresses in dance and song exactly what our society is desiring so intensely at this time – equity, diversity and inclusion. It makes me so happy to see the Peninsula International Dance Festival being held in San Mateo which is even more convenient and central to these groups. I know that it will continue in the future with great success.”
