Overview
Dimensions Dance Theater presents dance performances drawn from African traditions and the African American diaspora experience. As a dynamic force in the cultural life of the East Bay, Dimensions offers a cluster of programs through residencies in the Oakland public school system, classes at its dance studio, and a sequence of annual performances by the adult company. Dimensions’ programming reaches nearly 8,000 audience members and more than 1,000 students in and after-school. Students are trained in movement and provided a cultural groundwork rooted in African traditions. Funding for Dimensions would address gaps between administrative capacities and artistic growth, and develop a new performance (The Town), which explores the many facets of Oakland’s urban conundrum, and will be the basis of the organization’s artistic and educational programming.
