The 418 Project is located at 418 Front Street in downtown Santa Cruz and is a hub for social, ethnic and concert dance. We talked about how it began 20 years ago by Rita Rivera under the name of Santa Cruz Dance Gallery as one of the first non-profit arts center in Santa Cruz. It began with supporting a dance population that featured modern dancers, as well as artists including drummers and visiting teachers from Africa and Brazil. Soon after, Papiba Ghodinho began teaching capoeira.  Thirteen years ago, Sunday mornings became sacred space when Dance Church opened its doors.Today, the 418 Project programming includes a variety of classes from Contact Improv to Hoop Dance, Samba, Zumba, and West African Dance.
