ODC Dance Commons

Nominated for: BEST Dance Studio

ODC Dance Commons 351 Shotwell St San Francisco CA (415) 863-6606

ODC is a groundbreaking contemporary arts institution with longstanding roots in the San Francisco community. The organization was formed by Brenda Way in 1971 as a collective of artists at Oberlin College in Ohio where the name ODC originates (Oberlin Dance Collective). Adventure, a certain irreverence and the joy of moving were key ingredients to the core philosophy of our founding members. In 1976, the sixteen dancers, painters, writers, photographers and musicians of the collective bid farewell to Ohio, piled into a big yellow bus and came west to San Francisco to find a context for their artistic vision and social ideals.

Now one of the most active centers for dance on the West Coast, we are unique for our fully integrated program vision and far-reaching impact. Our two building campus, which will have eight studios, 2 performance venues and several office suites, is home to a world-class dance company, a professional, pre-professional, and recreational dance training program, a Healthy Dancer's Clinic, and a nationally regarded presenting venue.

Operating in San Francisco's Mission district for 37 years, our programs and numerous neighborhood activities have contributed to community development, stability and access to creative art-making. Presenting, co-presenting, scholarship, work exchange, apprentice, sponsorship and rental programs are all here to serve the large professional dance, music and theater communities in San Francisco.
