Rhythm & Motion and Yerba Buena Gardens Festival invite you to join us for R&M Fusion class 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 and to work with YBGFestival to energize the Gardens with the joy of music and dance.
Pre-registration is required.
Classes are one hour and are now on Wednesdays. Wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in and supportive shoes suitable for moving on grass. Bring water, wear sunscreen (the area we'll be dancing in does not have shade) and your sense of joy and connection.
Per city and state guidelines, face coverings are not required in an outdoor setting. We do ask that you keep yourself and others protected and stay home if you are not feeling well.
These free weekly classes are being generously sponsored by the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival. Please consider supporting Yerba Buena Garden Festival’s community programming efforts by making a donation at ybgfestival.org/donate/
Rhythm & Motion Dance Workout -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.
R&M Fusion is our original fast-paced, follow-along format. Classes begin with a warm-up that emphasizes techniques from many dance forms, and builds to high energy dancing to increases stamina and strength.
Exactly when and where will we meet? We will meet at the stone stage in the esplanade area within the Yerba Buena Gardens, Mission Street between 3rd and 4th Streets, in the heart of downtown San Francisco (see map below). Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in and get situated.
Are there bathrooms and water fountains? Restrooms are available in the nearby Metreon beginning at 11am. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle as the water fountains are not available at this time.
What if we have wet weather? If it rains or if the dance space is wet, for everyone's safety, we will cancel the class and notify participants via email by 9am on the day of the scheduled class.
Where can I park my car or bike? There is metered parking along 3rd & Folsom streets and the two nearest parking garages are the 5th & Mission Garage and the Moscone Center Garage.
