San Diego Dance Theater and Dance Fierce has made a huge difference in my daughter's life, besides being a great exercise on a weekly basis, it provides confidence, discipline, and a sense of accomplishment AND a sense of belonging. This is a structured and professional class and I highly appreciate not only being affordable but the scholarship opportunities. THANK YOU!

I am a member of the audience. Jean Isaac's Trolley Dances are an innovative program of six or seven original interpretive dances, each one performed at a separate site around the city of San Diego. Each site is easily accessed (and this is how access is encouraged) by taking the trolley. Every year, different dances are created and performed and new sites are chosen to stage each separate dance. Tickets include the trolley fare. Access is available to handicapped individuals. The tour takes about 3 hours. It is a wonderful way to spend a day outdoors, enjoy music and dance, discover new sites in San Diego, and familiarize people with our public transportation. It is not unusual to reconnect with old friends, regular attendees and coworkers.

The Great!

Months after the last set of Trolley Dances, recalling last year's performances warms me on this cold, rainy March day. I look forward to this year's presentations. Quick story; one dance last year was performed at a fountain/pool in a park. Some homeless people were nearby, and one, whose alcohol intake was clearly detectable from a significant distance placed himself in front of the crowd to watch. No threat to anyone. He was enthralled. What a gift for an unfortunate individual!

I don't think there is anything I would change. There is seating, usually given first to the elderly or handicapped. Everyone else just figures how to arrange themselves so they can see best. It keeps the mood casual and allows the audience to bond with each other as they figure how to accommodate the needs of small children and older or handicapped individuals. It really becomes a community experience. This should be considered for a CONTEST campaign

This organization is a beautiful part of our community that helps many people on a daily basis. Movement, relating to rhythm and music is innate in all of us and is a part of all of our ancestries. This organization is able to fulfill us with the need that we have to take part in dance. Providing us with happiness, health and longevity, and a feeling of accomplishment. Through the amazing art form known as dance, this organization is able to give hope, give a voice, improve heath, educate, and empower individuals of all ages in the community.

I have not only had the amazing opportunity to dance with this organization several years ago, but every year I take part in viewing their beautiful art form and allowing it to touch and inspire my life as well as the lives of my children, family, and friends.

Without this dance organization, there would be a void. My hope is that they will continue to help and empower our community for many years to come.

San Diego Dance Theatre under the tireless, wise and passionate leadership of Jean Isaacs has served thousands of dancers over nearly 4 decades. Another reviewer commented that Jean Isaacs is the mother of modern dance in San Diego and this is true. I've seen numerous performances of Jean's choreographer for both her professional company dancers and her many students and she is truly gifted in her ability to bring out the best in her dancers beginning students to professionals. Jean can and has inspired many people to embrace the calling of the dance.

I don't have any suggestions for changing SDDT. I think they do an excellent job of bringing dance to our region in unique and empowering ways through Trolley Dances, their concert series, Cabaret Dances and the education programs.

Jean Isaacs is the mother of modern dance in San Diego. She has consistently trained dancers to the professional level while maintaining her outstanding contributions in presenting modern dance in SD. Jean's commitment to the artistic community in SD deserves recognition and reward.
Her dances
always delight the audience, her dancers are beautiful, unique and generous. Jean continues to offer dance programs and dance opportunities that extend to all ages, levels of ability, economic/social conditions, ethnicities etc. Jean continues to refine and remake her art and she finds innovative ways to reach her audience. I strongly believe that given financial support, Jean Isaacs will continue to enhance the dance community. On a very personal level, I certainly would not be a professor of dance if were not for Jean's constant support and mentoring. Jean has truly created, from a grassroots level, a solid environment for dance and dancers to flourish in SD.

The Great!

Today I am a tenured Associate Professor of Dance. I am a complete and total product of Jean Isaacs' impact on dance training, teaching and performing in SD. However, I am not alone, because she does this for so many dancers. I hope you hear from all of them

The bottom line for changes or improvements is always money. Given money, there is no end to the positive affects Jean Isaacs can have on dancers and the dance community.

San Diego Dance Theater is an exceptional, healthy, professional organization with a strong commitment to dancers, dance art, students of dance, and the community in general. I have known SDDT's director, Jean Isaacs, for over 20 years. She has developed a corporate culture based on a vision that embraces individuals and the public through her genuine appreciation for not only the art form of SDDT but for humankind. The company members deliver this vision through their work, their openness, and through their complete commitment to the company and to the art form. San Diego is a better place because SDDT is part of the arts and culture industry here, and because SDDT and its stakeholders are dedicated to dance and to San Diego.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the numbers and diverse individuals served, which is evident in audience, in membership, in dancers, in board members, and in staff. I attend performances whenever possible, and through SDDT, I have developed a strong appreciation for the art form as well as for the people presenting it.

like to write grants for them to help develop awareness and income.
