Yerba Buena Gardens Festival and Rhythm & Motion invite you to join us for small group (and socially distanced) dance classes for FREE at the beautiful Yerba Buena Gardens. For over 40 years, Rhythm & Motion has provided the joy, intensity and skill of dance to the public in welcoming atmospheres through its classes, events and community-minded programming. We are excited to bring people together (safely) and to work with Rhythm & Motion to re-energize the Gardens with music and dance.

Rhythm & Motion (R&M) is an addictive follow-along class that is inspired by vocabulary and a soundtrack of songs from across the globe. Classes are taught by experienced dancers and performing artists that all emphasize the joyful spirit and open expressiveness of dance in its many forms. All levels and abilities are welcome to join.

Classes are scheduled for Tuesdays in April and May, with the possibility of continuing on. Registration is required and capacity is limited per SFDPH guidelines. Registration for the upcoming week of classes will open on Fridays at 6pm.
