Live On The Square

Live On The Square


After 10 successful years, Dancing Under the Stars will expand to Live on the Square, a free weekly festival featuring entertainment, food, and fun in addition to weekly dance lessons every Friday from June 7th through September 27th, 2019!

Join us early to grab a bite to eat at one of the Square’s restaurants, get in a little warm-up session and practice your moves with our DJs, visit the local Oakland vendors and then meet us at the foot of Broadway stage for our weekly dance lessons, taught by professional dance instructor Carla Service, founder of Dance-A-Vision Entertainment and fellow dance colleagues. Dance themes change every week and include Salsa, Caribbean, Swing, and Hip-Hop. After the lesson, guests are invited to boogie the night away at our public dance party!

As the summer continues, additional elements will be added to the festival, including DJ Battles, signature drinks for adults and kids, vendors representing a specific industry such as beauty and fashion, health and wellness, eco-friendly products, wearable tech, and more!
