dNaga is pleased to announce that we have received a matching commission fund grant from the East Bay Fund for Artists.

Please support our fundraiser to raise $8,000 for artist fees for our upcoming program Circle of Sisterhood! The EBFA grant supports a dollar for dollar match! Funds must be raised by the end of summer!

Circle of Sisterhood: What can you do?

We cannot make art without you! This art form means nothing if it stays in the studio. Only when we share the work with a community does the work truly become alive. Dance, in particular is an esoteric art form. There is nothing tangible to take away. I often envy my friends who create a tangible product like a painting, a photograph or a book. With dance, we have a memory and a feeling to leave with. My collaborators and I strive to create art that has an impact on our audiences. Through the art, we strive to inspire deep thinking, encourage discourse and a call to action.

Circle of Sisterhood

We are proud to be in our fourth year of programming of the GIRL Project at EastSide Cultural Center. Our project offers free dance and empowerment programming for girls 11 to 14 living in East Oakland. This year, dNaga dancers will offer a performance July 15th and 16th and provide an opportunity for the girls to experience what it is like to be part of a professional production. Lead artists include choreographer Claudine Naganuma, composer Joel Davel and videographer Stevie Sanchez. We hope to see you there!

  • We love partnering with businesses that support the arts and are aligned with our values! For inquiries about corporate sponsorship opportunities, please email Artistic Director Claudine Naganuma at claudine@dnaga.org.
