LBC Wins NEA Grant to Expand Community Access to the Art of Dance

We are proud and delighted to announce that the LBC has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in support of our Rodney Strong Dance Series and affiliated community engagement activities that advance the power of the arts to broader audiences in our community. The dance performances and accompanying programs will reflect Sonoma County’s diverse community and attract and engage intergenerational audiences.

LBC’s 2023/2024 dance series will feature three performances by leading dance companies, including Parsons Dance, Calidanza Dance Company, and Halau Hula Ka No’eau. The public performances will highlight various dance forms, techniques, and histories to engage younger audiences in particular with the art form. In addition to the performances, LBC will provide multiple points of engagement for the community, including post-show discussions, free master classes for high school students, and matinee performances for schools.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award, which will help us deepen our audience’s engagement with and understanding of dance, as well as the various cultural histories of our communities,” said Rick Nowlin, President and CEO. “By engaging younger audiences with this art form, LBC aims to sow intergenerational understanding and arts engagement.”
