Dance as a Moveable Feast!

Moves After Dark - Kelev Lavan

It’s been nearly a week since we concluded our 2 week run of Moves After Dark, but we’re still buzzing about the shows, which did prove to be a kind of “moveable feast” throughout our beautiful Music Center campus.  Each of the 4 dance companies featured brought such amazing work to their assigned spaces, so much so we don’t know if we’ll ever see them the same way again!  From Ate9’s brilliantly bizarre piece in the Founders Room, to Lula Washington Dance Theatre’s uplifting Message for my Peeps on the steps of the Disney Concert Hall, to Ana Maria Alavarez’s splash-sational work in the Taper Reflecting Pool, and BODYTRAFFIC’s intriguing Restructure on the plaza with Gustavo Godoy’s stunning yellow sculpture –  Moves After Dark had something for everyone and truly transformed our Music Center into a cornucopia of dance as we never have before.

 But beyond the dancing, we loved the atmosphere that our audience added to the mix.  As groups of patrons walked from performance location to location, sharing thoughts, sipping beverages and snapping pics, a wonderful sense of community developed.  It was the perfect way to enjoy dance on a warm summer’s evening in LA.  If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket to one of our sold-out shows, leave a comment below and let us know which piece was your personal favorite.
