Welcome to Redwood Raks!

​Celebrating a World of Dance since 2008... 12 years!


Redwood Raks World Dance Studio is a vibrant space in the historic Old Creamery Building in the heart of Arcata's Creamery District with an eclectic array of dance classes, workshops, performances and special events for all ages. We have space to rent for classes, rehearsals, meetings, workshops, parties and performances, with two spacious hardwood floor studios. We hope to see you soon!

In 2020 we are excited to transform Redwood Raks into Redwood Raks Collective, a non-profit organization designed to keep our space happily dancing into the new decade.  Our Mission: 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. 

Where is Redwood Raks? 
We're at 8th & L Streets in Arcata, at the end of the courtyard off the parking lot of the Old Creamery Building. Our address is 824 L Street (east-facing entrance). See a map here.


Many events are on our Facebook Page. Too many to list!
