Welcome to Redwood Raks Collective!

​Continuing to Celebrate a World of Dance in Arcata's Creamery Building!

Redwood Raks is now an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization as Redwood Raks Collective, EIN #84-3608325. Thanks to the generosity of our community we have been able to keep afloat for the last six months and are now excited as some classes return. 


Our schedule is still far from full (but some classes are starting!!!), and we continue to welcome your donations. Donations can go to our general fund, or may be directed toward our effort to make an outdoor dance space behind the Jade Studio or to our Scholarship Fund to help local dancers and musicians pursue training to share with our local community. 


You can drop cash or a check at the studio, mail to 824 L St, Box 16, Arcata CA 95521, or donate in any amount via PayPal to rakscollective@gmail.com. The QR code below will also allow you to donate. Thank you for helping us keep SPACE for you! 


UPDATE 9/25/2020: 

We are just about to send out our very first Redwood Raks Collective newsletter with updates and info. Would you like to get it too? Just drop us a line and we'll add you to the list. 

New classes are starting!!! October finally brings dancing to our lovely studio floors. We are a County Approved Fitness Center operating classes at 25% capacity. Dancers & teachers must wear masks, distance, do good hand cleaning and be Covid screened upon entry. Know the symptoms and stay home if you have them.


See the schedule here!


Redwood Raks Collective is a vibrant community-driven cultural center with a mission to foster movement education and human connection through a diverse array of classes and events. MORE INFO HERE!!!

Look for our new Donation Depot which raises money for local musicians and dancers to attend immersive summer camps and share what they have learned in our community, artist in residence programs, additional fantastic two-room dance parties and more! We invite you to get involved and be a part of our energetic local dance community.
