We need strong language to include with our year-end appeal
Zaccho is entering its 40th Anniversary season in 2020, but has not met our preliminary fundraising goals for 2019. We have a strong email list, but have not yet successfully built an individual donor base.
Zaccho Dance Theatre creates and presents performance work that investigates dance as it relates to place.
Since our founding in 1980, Zaccho has been an innovative force in both the world of dance and our home community of Bayview Hunter's Point, San Francisco's African American Arts & Cultural District. Artistic Director Joanna Haigood and collaborators pursue unique and challenging visions of dance, including spectacular aerial choreography, evocative site-specific performances, and culturally significant subject matter. Zaccho opens the door to creative expression for a diverse group of artists, and elevates it to works of international acclaim.
Zaccho draws inspiration from social histories including the African-American experience, and returns it to the community through inclusive youth programs, adult classes, artist-in-residence programs, and a one-of-a-kind aerial arts festival, many at low or no-cost to participants. As a longstanding nonprofit program, we pride ourselves on maintaining our artistic integrity, social consciousness, and community involvement.
