Welcome to Redwood Raks Collective!

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

The wonderful folks of Redwood Raks Collective, EIN #84-3608325, is stepping into the role of running Redwood Raks, and has created a fundraiser to keep the space vibrant for our community after this crisis passes while no classes or events are generating income. Feel free to share far and wide. We miss seeing you and hope you will be able to dance at Redwood Raks again soon! Redwood Raks Collective is now an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 



(to keep things going for 2-3 months with no income)

UPDATE 7/14/2020 

We are SO excited to be having a FUNDRAISER and SUMMER DANCE CELEBRATION called "Will Dance For WiFi" on August 1st at 6pm on Zoom to raise the money to get our own good bandwidth internet service going at Redwood Raks. yay! 
If you'd like to check out our Facebook fundraiser happening before the dance show (online on zoom!) it's here:

We are SO excited for meeting and exceeding our goal.
We're trying to raise $1,200 and so far through our fundraiser and extra funds people have contributed we're at $1,275. YAY.

Here's the link to our fun show!


UPDATE 6/17/2020: 

Redwood Raks Collective had the first board meeting last month with another scheduled for tomorrow, 6/18. The board and people interested in being on committees have been up to many projects and are excited to start welcoming people back to the space when we are allowed to submit a plan to the county. Hopefully soon!
In the meantime, we've been busy bees working at the studio making it lovely for everyone. Thom Boswell directed the sanding and refinishing of the floors in the lobby (it is dreamy!) and we've been painting things. So far the burgundy risers and ledge are freshly coated and we will soon be starting on the lobby and bathrooms. 


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.
