Our first year back in the Bay Area is just about to wrap up with our final fourth extended weekend module at Zaccho Studio in San Francisco.
We are excited to say that we are about to graduate our first group of 15 folks since we closed in Oakland in 2008 and returned from three summers in Berlin in 2014. We began last Jan. 25, 2017 and will end on Nov. 5th.
We have been honored to be in partnership with Zaccho Studio this year, invited by Joanna Haigood (Founder & Director of Zaccho) where we successfully re-organized into a 4 extended weekend format to see if we could be more accessible in these faster and busier times and discovered that weekends make sense in this busy Bay Area.
Zaccho provided an amazing partnership and we have enjoyed their enormous and light-filled studio on the top floor of an artist warehouse building. We also enjoyed having the staff at Zaccho participate in our workshops.
As this year comes to an end, MOC is announcing its BIG NEWS to return to East Bay, BERKELEY, next year - 2018. Zaccho and MOC came to a mutual agreement for this change. We would be happy to continue our partnership when the time is right.
We will miss being under the umbrella of Zaccho and at the same time, we look forward to being at the FINNISH HALL in Berkeley under a new partnership with InterKinected, who have generously offered to be our fiscal sponsor.
Finnish Hall is an enormous, beautiful, naturally lit wood floor studio and is currently an exciting new Hub of active dance, performance, political and other events.
We are thrilled to be a part of this Hub and look forward to the beginning of another year back in the East Bay starting on May 2, 2018, ending Jan. 27, 2019.
