Trolley Dances Riverside is in its fifth year of production and continues to invigorate the community through the art of site-specific choreography. Re-imagine your city spaces and experience dance like never before. All aboard! Trolley Dances Riverside is an iconic event that offers the local community an exciting way to experience the art of dance outside of a traditional theater setting. Local dance artists work with community dancers to create site-specific choreography (movement that is informed by the location where the dance is to be performed). Audience members will board Trolley cars and take a ride along a pre-selected route, stopping at various sites in Riverside, including the Riverside Art Museum, to view these distinct dance performances. This collaboration between Riverside’s dance community and the neighborhoods, businesses, and landmarks brings dance directly into the community and city spaces, drawing attention to Riverside’ unique places and architecture, history, and people.
Trolley tours will begin at Back to the Grind Coffeehouse at 11 a.m., 12 noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. The Riverside Art Museum will be one of many surprise stops along the trolley dance tour. Learn more at trolleydancesriverside.com.
Trolley Dances Riverside is a production of P.L.A.C.E. Performance and Riverside City College Dance in partnership with the Riverside Transit Agency. Trolley Dances is a trademarked event of Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater.
