Discover Dance

Oakland Ballet Company’s Discover Dance educational programs foster learning through dance with in-school programs, free community performances, scholarships to our training programs, and ticket donations.

In Gratitude

As a non-profit organization, Oakland Ballet Company looks to the community to help ensure we are keeping the art of dance accessible, relevant, and exciting. 

Ticket revenue contributes only a fraction of the cost to produce a show.

The rest comes from you!
