Senior Prom is a production of San Diego Dance Theater’s (SDDT) Aging Creatively senior dance program. SDDT Artistic Director Jean Isaacs has created a fun evening to highlight this innately humorous, immersive, inter-generational event. Forty dancers perform in a wide variety of prom-like activities, including line dancing, spiking the punch bowl and crowning the King & Queen. In addition to Isaacs, choreographers include John Diaz, Yvonne Gagliardo, Betzi Roe and Kathryn Scheidegger. The evening is hosted by Ms. Tendu and Wolfman Jack. Take a walk down memory lane and join the party! Prom attire encouraged!
