– Central Coast Follies is a group of local dancers and singers who volunteer their time and talents to produce an originally-themed Follies show each year to entertain the community. Since 2003, annual events have raised funds for Parkinson Alliance – for research to help those with Parkinson’s Disease and neurological symptoms. The Follies 2022 goal is to donate $22,000, which will reach Central Coast Follies’ accumulated donation goal of $400,000.

To celebrate 20 consecutive years of entertaining audiences in the Central Coast, a variety of activities are planned:

  • Choreographer Jason Sumabat is offering free jazz and tap classes Sundays in January for children and adults! Join him from 2-3 PM for jazz and 3-4 p.m. for tap lessons at Dellos Performing Arts Center in Pismo Beach. Wear clothes you can move in and comfortable shoes to dance in.

If unable to attend, DVDs will be available following the performances and are discounted when purchased in advance.
