Affectionately named CLARA, the E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts provides studios and performance space for professional and community-based arts groups and a place for creative collisions and collaborations.
As the newest cultural icon of the Sacramento Downtown Renaissance, CLARA already is rich in history — housed within the 100-year-old historic Fremont School in midtown Sacramento — and bringing to life the fearless spirit, love of the arts and culture E. Claire Raley passed down through generations of the Raley-Teel family.
Rooted in the strong belief that arts are essential to the human spirit, fosters lifetime learning, and critical to economic development for the Sacramento region, CLARA also provides access to quality arts education in partnership with Sacramento City Unified School District.
CLARA is currently the home of the Alliance Francaise de Sacramento, Brazilian Center for Cultural Exchange of Sacramento, Capital Stage, McKeever School of Irish Dance, Sacramento Ballet, and Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy.
