About

UPDATE 3/31: We are so incredibly grateful to our community for all of the love and support you've given us over the last few weeks!! In response to the extension of the Shelter in Place order through April 30th, we're increasing our fundraising goal to $100,000. We're adding online classes to help provide work for our faculty (and keep all of us dancing during these challenging times), but we will still need a lot more support before we can get our amazing teachers back into our studios. The most important things you can do right now to help are to register for our online classes at odc.dance/schedule and to make a donation here.

At ODC School and Rhythm & Motion, the health and well-being of our students, teachers, staff and wider community are our top priority. That’s why we have suspended all in-person classes through April 30th.


We are acutely aware that this comes with major financial ramifications for our teachers and accompanists – the heart of the ODC School and Rhythm & Motion community.


Many of you have already inquired about how you can help support them during this time and in response, we have created this fundraising campaign to do just that. The economic climate of the Bay Area was already challenging before the COVID-19 crisis began. The loss of teaching income is likely more than what many of our teachers can absorb.


We know that these are extraordinary and unpredictable times but we are committed to supporting one another in whatever ways that we can until we can safely come together to dance again.
