We Are Disco Riot

Our mission is to grow social consciousness and connection through collaborative, thought-provoking movement-based arts in San Diego.

disco gives form to riot

 

DISCO RIOT exists to elevate a collaborative art culture in San Diego and beyond — because the world needs more movement-based art. We connect dancers and artists who want to move themselves and audiences in ways that push boundaries to make high impact art that promotes community, justice, and movement as a form of radical expression.

 

DISCO RIOT produces and supports innovative dance programming, connects artists across media and form to grow and intensify our community, and provide an educational space that reflects contemporary and progressive professional realities.

 

Our intent is to incite the exploration and (r)evolution of what our arts community can truly be, and to change the culture of how dance exists within it. Dance is potent; dance should move people. DISCO RIOT is here to make people feel and see something significant, and to move them towards the unexpected.

DISCO RIOT is you, too!

We believe that more collaboration and community (not just artists, but enthusiasts and patrons as well) is the key to growing a healthy and progressive arts scene in San Diego, so check out what we’re up to and join the party! Apply for a residency, come see a show, move with us, volunteer, connect, and share us with your friends. There are so many ways to be part of the DISCO RIOT (r)evolution.

In cooperation with

DISCO RIOT can’t do what we do without the generous support of community.
