SAN DIEGO – This month, the City of San Diego’s Civic Dance Arts has brought back its critically acclaimed dance show to the historic Casa del Prado Theater in Balboa Park. “Collage 2023: Dance Matters” made its victorious comeback recently and will continue on Feb. 10-11 and Feb. 17-19.

“Collage 2023: Dance Matters” also highlights the talents of the program’s four advanced performing level companies and is the culmination of the year’s artistic endeavors.
