47th Anniversary of the Holiday Festival of Dance

On December 14th and 15th more than 500 dancers will converge for the “Holiday Festival of Dance.” This annual event is co-sponsored by the San Mateo Parks & Recreation Dept. and the San Mateo Dance Association.

Through the magic of theatre, dance and a lot of hard work by many volunteers, the San Mateo High School gym is transformed into a Holiday theatrical production complete with lighting, music, costumes and choreography.

This year’s presentation is the 47th Anniversary of this magical production and will feature dancers currently within the City’s Youth and Adult Dance Programs, as well as city employees who perform in our famous Reindeer and the City Dancer’s dance. 

This year’s production is entitled “The Greatest Gift of All” and is sure to warm hearts both young and old.
