ODC, formerly known as the Oberlin Dance Collective, has spent the past forty years building a highly reputable and innovative dance organization in San Francisco’s Mission District. Each year, its contemporary dance company, theater/presenting entity, and dance school engage more than 16,000 students and 50,000 Bay Area audience members in the art of making dance. ODC reopened its newly renovated theater space in October 2010 on its two-building campus. Renewed funding would support this important cultural institution in its next phase of growth under new administrative leadership and with a comprehensive strategic planning process under way.
