In part 2 of today's show we talk to Krissy Keefer, Artistic Director of the Dance Brigade, the Bay Area's dynamic multi-racial troupe of women proving that socially relevant dance can be technically brilliant, as well as exuberant with down-home hilarious fun. The Dance Brigade celebrates its 40th anniversary January 13th and 14th with shows at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Joining Dance Brigade to celebrate their historic past on this 40th anniversary will be many artists and musicians who broke the ground on cultural diversity and community engagement in the 70's and 80's. They include international peace activist and vocalist Holly Near and musical director Christelle Durandy, among others. GRACIAS A LA VIDA will celebrate the fusion of art, politics, dance, and music that form the rich and unique foundation of our Bay Area arts community, giving thanks to the collective legacy of Dance Brigade and its local and international collaborators!
