Support Oakland Ballet Company

As a non-profit organization, Oakland Ballet Company looks to the community to help ensure we are keeping the art of dance exciting, vibrant, and accessible. Ticket revenue contributes only a fraction of the cost to produce a show. The rest comes from you!

By making a contribution to OBC, you will support the many exciting works and events planned for the season, including the ongoing commitment to arts education for East Bay public schools, a core part of OBC’s mission. Each season, our Discover Dance educational program makes the art of dance accessible for 15,000+ East Bay students and community members.
