    The video attached is a short presentation of the Free Spring Dance Festival presented at Eastridge Center as a celebration of National Dance Week presented last month. It combined professional companies and dance schools. It is an annual event produced by sjDANCEco.org. Please join us for our program of World Premieres June 17 and 18 at the beautiful Hammer Theater Center in downtown San Jose’s SoFA (South of First Street Arts District.)
