The second iteration of Transit Dances where five diverse dance companies performed along three Metro stops in Santa Monica. Audiences traveled from the 26th St./Bergamot station to the 17th St. station and conclude at the 4th St. station. At each stop, tour guides took audience members to a site where a world-premiere site-specific dance was performed, then audiences got back on the Metro to the next performance stop. Based on the successful Trolley Dances in San Diego founded by Jean Isaacs, Transit Dances bring the arts into the community, inviting people to use public transit to see Santa Monica in a fresh, new way through the lens of dance, exploring hidden nooks and crannies as well as more popular landmarks.
