One of the best kept, unintentional secrets of The Music Center’s dance program is our Dance Talks. These amazing lectures, conversations and Q& A’s before each of our performances are completely free (if you have a ticket) and feature some of LA’s brightest dance writers and our guest companys’ brightest stars. Hear Gillian Murphy talk about playing Giselle, hear all about Paul Lightfoot’s creative process, get the inside scoop on legendary companies like American Ballet Theater & Paul Taylor Dance Company – All before seeing world renowned dancing at The Music Center.
The talks always begin an hour before the curtain goes up, but you can also listen to them via phone if you’re running late (we post the dial in’s on our Twitter and Facebook pages.) Or if you’d rather indulge in some insider information after you see the performances, listen to our Dance Talks podcasts posted on The Music Center SoundCloud channel and take these inspiring talks with you on the go.
