Open Floor Marin held our first Holiday Benefit Dance in 1993, a small gathering of dancers that donated $500 to feed the homeless in San Francisco. This has matured into our annual fundraiser that has donated more than a quarter of a million dollars. We support community members in need of medical assistance, as well as local and international service organizations (see below).
The generosity of our Open Floor community only grows stronger with time.


Come prepared to open your heart, your wallet, and to dance the night away in a loving community.
