Originally the Celebration Dance Company founded in 1976 by James Wheatley, Celebration Arts became a 501c3 organization in 1986. For more than 30 years, Celebration Arts continues to be a cornerstone of music, dance, and theater for the Sacramento region’s African American community bringing Black artists and stories to its stage at 2727 B Street.

For our 2023 Season, Overcoming, Celebration Arts will bring six emotional and powerful stories focusing on overcoming adversities in African American culture — discrimination, brutality, Hollywood stereotypes, age discrimination, institutional racism, and housing discrimination.

These productions include Direct from Death Row – The Scottsboro Boys, What To Send Up When It Goes Down, By The Way, Meet Vera Stark, Mother Juliet And Her Romeo, Thurgood, and A Raisin In The Sun.

In addition, Celebration Arts provides educational programs to children through Kids’ Time and dance training for teens, adults, and seniors. And our 94-seat theater is also available for public rentals.
