Dance is the most basic vehicle to promote compassion, understanding and equity

The Presidio Dance Theatre has been commissioned to choreograph and perform for humanitarian organizations such as the United Nations, International Red Cross, UNESCO, Assyrian Aid Society, Assyrian Arts Institute, UCSF’s Brain Cancer Research Center and Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

Most recently PDT embraced artists from Palestine, Syria, Iran, Azerbaijan, Lebanon, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, The Republic of Georgia, Uganda and Latin America. Many artists find a refuge in PDT and as refugees/immigrants, PDT has provides a safe space and opportunities for assimilation in the US. Working with underrepresented artists from conflict-ridden countries fosters an appreciation for the arts as a catalyst of social change, highlighting our shared humanity and traditions.
