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 12/23/20: 

Well, we're in the Purple Tier and all in-studio classes are currently on hold. Some are continuing virtually, but most are holding out for that in-studio or hybrid experience to return.

We had a rotten break-in earlier this month, but the electronic equipment was recovered, and we'll get our donation depot going again in 2021 for sure! We now have better locks and security and are working on things that will make Redwod Raks more secure in the future! :-)


Please enjoy our most recent newsletter. Did you miss it? Just drop us a line and we'll add you to the list. 


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.
