East Bay Dance Center
The East Bay Dance Center (EBDC) was established in 1990 by Bonnie Sita to offer dance in its many forms to all ages and levels, and to provide quality performances and performing opportunities in the community.
We offer a fun, clean and safe environment where children and adults can learn a variety of styles of dance. Our caring, professional staff has many years of dance and teaching experience. We offer year-round classes in jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop, acrobatics/tumbling and preschool dance for children, teens and adults, as well as Dance Camps through the school holidays and summer. A special After-School Program and Saturday Program is offered.
East Bay Dance has three performing companies:
- Move Dance Theatre (established in 1984 by Bonnie Sita and the late Toney Pennewell) for teens and adults
- MDT II (ages 12-18)
- MDT III (ages 10-14)
MDT offers dancers pre-professional and professional training and performing opportunities. Move Dance Theatre received a Mayoral Proclamation in 1994 for their artistic contributions to the City of Oakland.
