OBC Events

We are so proud to call Oakland home. For over 50 years the city has inspired us. Keeping the art of dance a vibrant tradition within our community continues to be part of what defines the Oakland Ballet as a leading arts organization in the East Bay. From glamorous events like our annual Spring Gala to free performances around the community at venue’s such as Children’s Fairyland and Oakland Art Murmur, we love to step outside the studio and connect with our audience. Join us at our next event and experience the role dance plays in Oakland.
