Overview
Luna Dance Institute provides comprehensive professional development in dance for almost 300 teachers, and serves more than 15,000 children annually by reaching those with the least access through its Summer Institute for educators, in-school artist/teacher-led dance classes in the Oakland Unified School District, and through free classes for children and their families at its West Berkeley studio. The in-school program builds a comprehensive, standards-based, sustainable dance education program tailored to a specific school site, and requires a three-year minimum commitment by the school. A renewal grant would assist Luna Dance Institute in building its capital base and raising visibility for its programs.
