Bailando en las Calles (Dancing in the streets)

On Sunday, May 6, Brava! for Women in the Arts and Precita Eyes Muralists presented their sixth annual “Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances 2018.” On the streets of the block surrounding the Brava Theater Center on 24th Street in San Francisco’s Mission District, various participating dance groups made presentations as small groups of attendees were led around the block by Brava guides.
