In celebration of the Centennial and the opening of the Arts and Humanities and Business Technology buildings, San Diego Dance Theater will be hosting their annual Trolley Dance tour of our city’s hot spots, which this year includes our very own City College.
The tour will start their route at City College, beginning at the college’s trolley stop, located on 14th and C Street next door to the City LRC building. Following the campus performances, patrons will then travel supervised of trained tour guides to Market Creek Plaza. The tour happens multiple times throughout the day for groups of around 50-75 people.
With a total of 4 dates the trolley dances are happening over the weekends of Sept. 27-28 and Oct. 4-5.
“Every year, the trolley dances are somewhere else. We work with the San Diego MTS that runs the trolley lines..,” Toni Robin explains. “We met with them 3 or 4 months ago to decide which line we were going to go on. They suggested this year that we do the City College line because City College is having their centennial celebration.”
There will be 3 dances on campus, some at “unusual sites” to help showcase the new buildings, according to Robin. 5 different choreographers will be leading dance performances for the Trolley Dance, including City’s professor of dance Terry Wilson.
“We thought it was an ideal situation because many of our dancers and choreographers either teach at City or go there,” said Robin. “So we just started to tie in.”
Patrons can either get a ticket in advance or when they get to the first stop. Tickets include a free all day Trolley Pass with advance purchase and are valid for any of 6 tours each day.
General admission is $35, $25 for seniors, and $15 for students and military. The tour runs six times total, with first departure at 10:00 a.m. then last at 1:45 p.m.
