(Download flyer and share with others here.)
Eddie Garcia toured internationally with Tony! Toni! Tone! and has volunteered his skills as a hip hop instructor for Dance Out Diabetes several times. He knows how to teach it in such a way that everyone can follow and enjoy, regardless of your level. Please join us at the African American Art & Culture Complex (AAACC) located at 762 Fulton Street, San Francisco 94102 (between Webster and Buchanan, with easy Muni access and free parking). AAACC donated Dance Studio A space for us to use. We so appreciate it!

Healthcare costs are crazy and we are doing something about it. You have access to certified diabetes educators who will answer your questions and provide a free health screening ($100 value) including an A1C test (3 month glucose average), glucose, blood pressure, waist measurements - all tracked over time so you can see your progress. Some people just come to dance and want to pass on the health screening. That's fine. Our friendly environment welcomes all types.
Please arrive promptly at 1 p.m. for check-in (or 1:15 if you are not doing the health screening). Bring water, a snack if you need it and comfortable shoes.
