After closing our facility due to COVID-19, and moving nine times in 30 years, Luna finally purchased a home on March 31, 2022 in West Berkeley. As we renovate Luna’s building and continue to raise funds, our team of staff, board, and volunteers will share the process from their perspectives.
LEAP LAND SOAR Blog: Dance Education’s Impact by Saharla Vetsch
June 1st, 2023
Working at Luna has opened my eyes to the blooming possibility of dance education and the impact it can have on all of our lives. Growing up in a low-income household my family didn’t have the means to put me into programs and activities that weren’t free or through school. Although I got to explore many different activities and learn various skills, I desperately wanted to be enrolled in dance classes.
We are grateful to the generous campaign contributors that helped us secure an enduring home for dance.
Please consider joining them.

Peek Inside – the vision for Luna’s new space
Luna was founded in 1992 to serve as a home for dance teachers displaced by the Loma Prieta earthquake. Three decades later, Luna has grown from a local dance studio to a nationally recognized, innovative teaching and learning center supporting 300+ artists and educators to bring the transformative power of dance to tens of thousands of children each and every year.

“A permanent home will be a game-changer for Luna’s life-changing dance programs. Circumstances beyond our control forced us to leave our rented Berkeley studio in 2020. This was the 9th time in our 30-year history that we were forced to move. Now is the time to secure the launching pad—the position of financial stability—that is vital to Luna’s future.”
