Season Sponsorships



Thank you to our partners and supporters of the 2019-20120 season.  We celebrated Mexican Arts with Luna Mexicana, once again journeyed to the Land of the Sweets in Graham Lustig’s The Nutcracker, and partnered with the Oakland Symphony to present Borderlines choreographed by Graham Lustig at the Paramount Theatre in February.

In total our performances entertained more than 16,000 audience members and we provided arts enrichment programs for 12,000 Oakland and East Bay students. We are humbled that our programs touched nearly 30,000 lives.
(More highlights from the 2019-2020 season.)

We cannot, however, ignore the ongoing uncertainties of these times.  Our utmost priority is the health and well-being of our audiences, staff, and artists.  The effects of COVID-19 have hit us hard.  Regretfully, we had to cancel our spring programs, “Dancing Through the Ceiling” and “Oaklandesque”, and postpone our annual Spring Gala.  Nevertheless we are dedicated to achieving our mission to make exciting and innovative dance accessible to our diverse community. We remain connected and engaged with our audiences and students.  Educational programs continue to be delivered to students electronically and we are on track to hold our Summer Intensive training program in July.  Watch for the return of our annual fundraising Gala later this year.  Oaklandesque” – a tribute to West Coast Blues and “Dancing Through the Ceiling”-our highly anticipated showcase of women choreographers, composers and designers will be produced in 2021.

Join us in our mission – become a 2020-2021 season sponsor today!
