Configuration 2024

March 9 – 16, 2024

Come see Santa Barbara’s premiere youth dance company at the annual sell-out smash, Configuration, presented by Santa Barbara Dance Arts. We are celebrating 25 years at Center Stage Theater. Configuration is perfect for the entire family and features high-energy hip-hop, evocative contemporary, and entertaining jazz numbers that will leave you dancing in your seat. See award-winning choreography from Los Angeles choreographers Sierra Kazil and Richard Elszy, plus work from local favorites Sunny Reichert, Chloe Roberts, Emily McKinney, and Alana Tillim. This will mark the debut of our Video Advocacy Project, a project of the youth-led Inclusion Coalition (in partnership with the Arts Mentorship Program) that will showcase a celebration of women’s rights through the art of dance. Unique to this production, student work shares the stage with professional choreographers, carefully selected and nurtured by professional mentors, while they compete for a $250 cash prize courtesy of American Riviera Bank, which will be awarded at the opening evening performance. Patron VIP seating is available at all shows.
