UPDATE! Dance Mission Theater is on the second floor and unfortunately the elevator is not yet fully installed due to unavoidable and frustrating delays in construction. Because of this, Sunday’s performance will be held at Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (2868 Mission Street between 24th and 25th Streets), which is fully wheelchair accessible. If you are in need of wheelchair accessibility, please attend Sunday’s performance. We apologize for the huge inconvenience and hope that this is a solution that works for folks!

The Bay Area International Deaf Dance Festival (BAIDDF) is an annual event produced by Urban Jazz Dance Company that consists of performances and workshops that highlight the important contributions that Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HoH) artists make to our community.

This year we have Deaf artists flying in from Colombia, Canada, India, all over the USA and more. There will be a diversity of Sign Languages.

Please note that the Sunday, 3pm performance is a family-friendly matinee.

In addition to performances, the festival will feature workshops in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballet, ASL DANCE, and more different types of dance classes taught by International, Domestic and Local Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing artists who sign fluently.  These workshops will be taught for both Youth and Adult participants at Dance Mission Theater and YBCA in San Francisco.
