Short Summary

AXIS Dance Company is one of the world’s most accomplished and innovative ensembles of dancers with and without physical disabilities. Based in Oakland, CA, and founded in 1987, we have performed nationwide and internationally as far away as Siberia.

Our company’s unique performances and education programs reach over 25,000 people each year, changing the way people think about dance and the possibilities of the human body. All of this with 6 dancers and a small staff of 5!

AXIS is a cultural jewel of the Bay Area. 

Yet our current office is a bit of a… rough stone.

With boxes as side tables and folding tables as desks our office space is not reflecting the exciting, dynamic company that we are. To be honest… it’s a little... sad. 

So, it’s time for a change! Time for a makeover!


What We Need & What You Get

Gensler, a world-renowned architecture and design firm, has generously assembled a topnotch pro bono team to design a functional, accessible and inspiring work environment for AXIS.  

The designs are ready, and Human Scale has generously donated office chairs and offered a huge discount on desks. All we need now is your help to make the rest a reality. Are you in?

Your donation will help fund:

  • 5 ergonomic desks chosen with complete accessibility in mind
  • a meeting table
  • a variety of storage solutions
  • bamboo flooring
  • ceiling tiles
  • paint & painting supplies
  • an exciting wall graphic

As a thank you for your generous contribution you will receive perks such as our everlasting gratitude, life time membership to the AXIS community, tickets to our show in April, VIP access to an open rehearsal, or - our favorite - the office named after you!  And AXIS is a 510(c)3 which means that all your donations are tax deductible.

If we don't reach our goal of raising $15,000 we will still use the funding towards our office makeover and make adjustments accordingly. If we exceed our goal we will invest the funds in more durable storage solutions, light fixtures, and better flooring.

The Impact

A well-designed space = happy AXIS staff = higher productivity = more awesome AXIS programming!

We operate on a tight budget, leaving no funds for projects such as these. Your participation in this campaign is an opportunity to demonstrate your belief in AXIS and the work we are doing. 

Other Ways You Can Help

Every contribution no matter how small helps, but we know that making a contribution is not possible for everyone. That doesn’t mean you can’t help. Please get the word out and tell your friends and family near and far about AXIS Dance Company and this project.
