We're starting a limited trial run of indoor classes beginning Monday, May 3, 2021 with some hybrid options.
We will continue to offer virtual classes at SADC Online! See below for FAQs, safety rules, registration & more.
Class Schedule: In-Person, Outdoors, Online
Outdoor classes are located at:
East Bay German International School
Use the 43rd Street entrance to the school yard at the corner of Salem Street (between San Pablo & Adeline Avenues)
Use the address: 1075 43rd St, Emeryville, CA 94608
ALL students and faculty must wear a mask when dancing outdoors.
Bring multiple footwear options to find out what works for you including socks and shoes! We are finding that light colored slightly thicker socks work best (black socks get quite warm).
There is a restroom and sink available outside. Bring water and snacks as you need. The dance space is in full sun, so consider your needs around sunscreen, hats, glasses and clothing.
