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.
