This is for an outdoor marley covered stage approximately 32 x 28 feet. Each set will be 10-25 minutes for professional companies and artists. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups each day, so we'd like to hear from schools also (sets under 10 minutes). The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after.
The festival is a special project of Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers, Louise Reichlin Director. We hope to host many of you again, and excited about new groups and works we haven't seen. To clarify, all professional dance companies will get honorarium based on length of set, and pre-professional groups will again open the programs as a showcase. There will also be a series of free previews in different locations including Alvas Showroom on August 29 and People's Place on Sept 3.
We are also looking for volunteers leading up to and during the festival, sponsors, prize donations for the free drawings, crafts and visual artists, music producers, and music groups. Visual artists can show their work for free, or if wishing to sell their art, can buy a booth for $50.
More about our sponsors and producers to follow. Right now we want to hear about you!
