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.” Each fall, tour guides lead groups of audience members on and off the trolley to view original pieces of site-specific choreography. More than 50 community and company dancers perform at various sites.

Trolley Dances™ 25k for 25 Years

Over the past 25 years, Trolley Dances has transformed public spaces into stages, bringing dance, culture, and joy to our community. We are reaching out to invite you once again to be part of our journey, as we launch our "25k for 25 Years" fundraising campaign. With your support, we aim to raise $25,000 to ensure the legacy of Trolley Dances continues to thrive.
