Keep Dance Festival Going

The West End Arts and Entertainment District (WEAED) will launch fundraising efforts for Alameda’s Animate Dance Festival 2020 tonight, Thursday, Nov. 21, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Phoenix, 2315 Lincoln Ave. The party features donated items from local businesses including cocktails, food, wine and beer. Music from DJ Tanoa and hip hop and Argentine tango performances will be among the offerings.

What started with a simple desire to see dance animate the haunting spaces of Alameda Point has become a central part of a wider mission to create a thriving arts district in the West End of Alameda. Animate Dance Festival provides an opportunity for Alameda to play host to some of the Bay Area’s most exciting dance artists. Tickets to the fundraiser cost $35. 

WEAED is an alliance of creators, venues and local residents with a shared goal to promote more performing and visual arts in Alameda.
