"San Francisco has beauty, creativity, wonder, fantastic hills, and a several communities of educators committed to our youth. From free tennis programs in McLaren Park, to programs like GIRLFLY, Out of Site, and BAYCAT for teens, San Francisco has tremendous offerings for young people. I have been happy to raise my own child here, and to teach dance to youth from all over the city. Flyaway believes in San Francisco as a place where the arts can advance equity, joy, and deep learning." - Jo Kreiter

Read a Review of
Sorry. Please. No.
"As the dancer moves in and out of the apparatus, from flying to floor, I notice that at moments the mechanics of working with an apparatus are revealed. What a beautiful metaphor for how transformative justice must function - at times we need to see the mechanics of the work to know where we have gone and where we are going. Maybe this is what the dancer sees as her gaze travels both forward and backward on the diagonal toward the apparatus." - Bhumi Patel
