Cutting-edge creative talent. The Bay Area’s top dance choreography. Designers on the verge. Immerse yourself at the DAMSF 5YA Party, the ultimate showcase for
diverse urban artists of all ages!

Now in its fifth year, the event is a major draw for inspiring creators and performers who are deeply committed to giving raw, untapped talent a place to grow. Last year, Melvin TimTim’s dance performance at DAMSF went viral via World Star Hip Hop. This year, event production powerhouses Marketing Kings join the DAMSF team alongside Art Attack SF, JE Media, Distinguish’d Minds and Tuesday BLEND to bring the one-night showcase and marketplace to life. Look forward to a jam-packed lineup of live dance and music performances by talents like Kida Burns, Vine sensations The Williams Family, and Bay Area singing beauty Netta Brielle, along with unstoppable DJ sets by the Goodcompany DJs and an interactive commerce experience featuring artwork curated by Art Attack and other various vendors.

Keep your eye out for unbelievable young talent, too. Showcasing artist Kida Burns is only 12 years old and has been featured on “Ellen Degeneres,” commercials for Target, and the movie “Battlefield America.” Also performing are The Williams Family, known for their dance features on Vine. Marketing pioneers Marketing Kings also have a hand in curating this year’s showcase, bringing in radio personality DC is Chillin’ from 106 KMEL, among other special surprises.

It all goes down Thursday, February 25th, at DNA Lounge in the heart of San Francisco’s budding SOMA District. DNA Lounge has hosted some of the world’s top artists, including Prince and Bone Thugs n Harmony. For the DAMSF 5YA Party, the space has been transformed into an interactive creative wonderland where performance, commerce, and pampering come together. Scope local artists’ artwork on display (also available for purchase), shop emerging designers’ one-of-kind pieces at booths beyond the stage, enjoy treats from the bar, and take pictures at the Montage Productions-sponsored photo booth in between performances.

Stacked with hand-picked talent of all ages, this year’s event promises to be as bold and inspiring as those of the past, which included appearances by SYTYCD Choreographers Pharside & Phoenix, “X-Factor” alum Ellona Santiago, “Verses & Flow” featured poet Prentice Powell, hip hop phenom Ellen Kim (who has toured with Beyoncé and Justin Bieber), and RJ “KoolRaul” Navalta of “America’s Best Dance Crew,” to name a few.

The event is open to guests of all ages, though intended for a mature audience.  Press passes are available for all media. To find out more about DAMSF as well as information on the artists, press passes, tickets, and more, please visit www.damsf.info. We can’t wait to see you there!
