About BASSH:

A long-time Santa Barbara entertainment favorite, BASSH has become an icon of the performing arts in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. Now entering its 22nd year, BASSH showcases a wide variety of social and theatrical dance genres, choreographed by local dance professionals, bringing together a colorful and diverse roster of dancers from a wide variety of genres. Our mission is to inspire everyone to participate in the exciting world of dance, while promoting Santa Barbara area dance studios, choreographers, teachers, and dancers. The show often sells out all two of its weekend performances.

Derrick Curtis founded BASSH in 2000 as a way of showcasing the variety of social dance genres in Santa Barbara. Over the 21 years that he produced the show, the repertoire expanded to include a wide variety of dance styles. Derrick is now retiring, and turning over the management of the show to his creative and talented team of professionals:   Jatila van der Veen, Artistic Director and Producer; Roxana Bonderson, Managing Director and Co-Producer; Sandy Samuelian Wallace, Marketing Director and Co-Producer.
