Paying For Your Classes

Recommended price for Fall 2022 is $300 for the whole session (Sept.-Nov.).


All of our classes are “pay what you can” and NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS.


Destiny Arts Center is a social justice organization. We ask that families contribute what they can. If you can afford to contribute more than the suggested price, please know that your funds go to directly support other families in our program.

PLEASE NOTE: We prioritize Oakland residents and BIPOC students on our waitlist.

Our Space

Destiny Arts Center is a 7,800 square foot dance and martial arts center located at 970 Grace Avenue between Market St. and San Pablo Avenue in North Oakland. With 3 large dance studios totaling over 3,000 square feet, this recently constructed facility features sprung wood oak floors, mirrors, integrated sound, central air, changing rooms and restrooms. High ceilings, skylights and windows create a well-lit airy space for our grounding and transformative programs.

Destiny Arts Center partnered with the Alameda County Community Food Bank in the Fall of 2019 to provide healthy snacks to the young people and families who come through our doors. Since the shelter-in-place order was issued in March of 2020, we have maintained a community food pantry that is open to anyone in our community in need. Our staff has worked to stock the pantry with commonly used food items that our teaching artists, staff and families can access. You can see our current pantry items here and contact our Program Associate, Beatriz ( to confirm a pick up time for items. Pick must be scheduled in advance, masks required.
