Luna Dance Institute

Luna Dance Institute is a nationally-acclaimed dance education organization based in Berkeley, California.  Our mission is to broaden access to dance to ALL children. We focus on community service with integrity and creativity as the foundation for dance in education.

Luna’s Professional Learning Component and our Model Programs work in tandem to bring high quality standard-based dance learning to children while improving dance teaching practice and advancing the field of dance education.

Model Programs

Luna’s model programs: School and Community Alliances, MPACT (Moving Parents and Children Together) and Studio Lab allow us to reveal what is possible in dance education and provide field research for our work. Through them, we serve children and families in our local community, representing the diversity of the Bay Area, who want to learn how to use the art of choreography to express their own ideas and envision a future.

Professional Learning

Professional Learning (PLC) at Luna is the pedagogy engine that drives all programs and provides professional education for dance teaching artists, classroom teachers, school and arts leaders, early childhood education faculty and social workers. These professionals study with us, learn from our model programs that demonstrate “best practice,” then take their new knowledge, skills and inspiration back to their home communities —exponentially expanding Luna’s reach.
