On October 2, 2016, Dogpatch Dance and Yoga celebrated our grand opening. We’re located in the historic Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, San Francisco's first integrated neighborhood. The building at one point was a molasses factory and you can still find some molasses around! We’re also a member of the Potrero Dogpatch Merchants Association

Owner, Kafi Payne

Before starting Dogpatch Dance and Yoga, I taught middle school and high school Spanish, was a middle school school administrator, worked in teacher credentialing, and new teacher support. My professional life has always been about how to develop fun and inclusive learning spaces, how to support learning in both young people and adults, and how to develop effective leadership.  Dance and yoga was always my place for stress relief and to rejuvenate in order to continue being of service.  The ability to now support others to find joy in movement is a dream come true and combines so many of my passions. I hope you can find a class (or two or three) here that makes you smile and an environment that is diverse and inclusive.
