After closing our facility due to COVID, and moving nine times in 31 years, Luna purchased a building in West Berkeley last year. We are excited to announce that we began renovations in August for an ADA-accessible community dance space! In September we started working on the elevator installation – digging the pit, pouring the concrete, and framing the elevator. Help us close the construction funding gap and raise $500,000 to create an enduring dance home for children, families, artists and teachers.

We are grateful to the generous campaign contributors that helped us secure an enduring home for dance.

Peek Inside – the vision for Luna’s new space
Our LEAP LAND SOAR video
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.”
