This year Dimensions Dance Theater is celebrating its 45th Anniversary and many years of providing an outstanding arts experience to bay area communities. Dimensions Dance Theater was founded in Oakland in 1972 as a dance company and school, and is today one of Oakland's pre-eminent professional dance companies, known for its presentation of traditional African dances and contemporary choreography drawn from African, jazz, and modern dance idioms. Our mission is to create, perform, collaborate and teach dance that reflects the lives and historical experience of the African Diaspora; moreover, we uplift our community and break down cultural barriers.
