Oakland Ballet Company’s 2013-2014 season production Oakland-esque is an exciting program featuring four world premieres celebrating the richness, diversity and beauty present in the East Bay community and paying homage to the city that has been OBC’s home for nearly 50 years!
Departing from the classical world of ballet, Oakland-esque showcases the company’s contemporary side – stripping away the elements of more formal ballet productions for a more hip, urban program celebrating dance and Oakland. This program features Oakland Ballet Company’s dynamic dancers with guest performers from Oakland’s groundbreaking AXIS Dance Company and the popular Oakland street dance crew Turffeinz.
