OBC Legacy Project Updates
A HUGE THANK YOU to our OBC Legacy Project Volunteer Gianna Davy, who has collected and inventoried over 300 Oakland Ballet Company programs.
“I am so happy to be working for ChromaDiverse! I think the work they are doing is extremely relevant and necessary for the field of dance. As an emerging professional dance artist myself, I am grateful to be in a community where dance history is preserved and honored.”—Abby Donnenfeld, ChromaDiverse Archive Associate
Abby is making great progress digitizing donated programs from Dance Theatre of Harlem friends and artists. Thanks so much to those who have donated so far!
