Trolley Dances


In partnership with San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, SDDT has presented Trolley Dances™ for over 20 years. Trolley Dances™ was created by former Artistic Director Jean Isaacs to make dance accessible to our entire community by taking art “to the people.” For two weekends each fall, tour guides lead groups of audience members on and off the trolley to view original pieces of outdoor choreography. More than 50 community and company dancers perform at various sites.

This Year's

Trolley Dances™ 2022 will take place during the last weekend of September and the first weekend of October. Announcements regarding choreographers and auditions will be made in June 2022.
