LADf 2020

   For nearly a decade, the Los Angeles Dance Festival has  celebrated the best dance ensembles the city has to offer. LA Dance Fest  features artists who are recognized locally and internationally for  their extraordinary talents. The dancers and choreographers in the  festival work in both the concert and commercial industries. Their work  is frequently presented on stages, in theaters, feature films,  television shows, music videos, commercials, and concert tours.

Los Angeles Dance Festival brings talented creators and  companies together at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State LA for  three amazing days of extraordinary works that showcase the wide breadth  of dance styles that this diverse city creates. The festival also  provides ways for the public to participate directly with the creators  who work in this vibrant art form.

April 3-5, 2020

Additional activities, such as workshops and  installations, will take place in the Intimate Theater prior to each  performance, and on the Luckman Street of the Arts during intermission. 

The Los Angeles Dance Festival Continues at other sites through out the month of April 2020 with more showcases, classes and events.
