Louise Reichlin & Dancers burst into the public eye in 1979 with their first performance at the Anson Ford Theatre when "Reichlin created a sensation with "The Tennis Dances" (Dance News). Over the years she has continued to examine our society from its most primitive nature to the emergence of the information age with "The E-mail Dances"
in 1996. Through multiple performances for the 23rd Olympiad, a summer series at the LA Zoo, touring the US and Mexico with "Dreamscapes" and "The Patchwork Girl of Oz"
Some of our earlier works when they were first done.

We recently did a complete revival of "The Tennis Dances" and added new material to "Tap Dance Widows Club" at the Bootleg Theater in April (please see a brand new review from Explore, and created new dances for a poetry project with Linda J. Albertano at Beyond Baroque in May, as well as completing residencies at Taper, Rosemont and Hillcrest El. Schools.  We currently have many performances and residencies at schools in the Los Angeles area, both curriculum based and after school. The company, a performing unit of Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers, was founded by Louise Reichlin.  

Applications Continue for the TriArt SP Festival - Sept.19-20, 2015
The SAN PEDRO ? TRI ART Festival is a free family event featuring Dance, Music, and Visual Arts/Crafts Booths in the Ports O'Call Village on the waterfront. This will be its 9th year, and the 5th at this beautiful outside location. Founded by Joe Caccavalla, we have been curating the event, but on Joe's passing in 2012, Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers began producing it. As a non-profit, we began applying for grants at that point. We are delighted that we have just received another Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, Festival Grant. The main performances are September 19 and 20, and some companies will also perform in previews including one on August 29 at Alvas. The deadline to apply is June 30.

Last year the Dance component included 14 professional and 6 pre-professional companies from all over the Southland. You can see more about the last three year's festivals at web-site TriArt SP 2014. There is an interest in all dance forms performed by professional companies including traditional ballet and modern as well as ethnic dance forms and hip-hop. Most of the works were traditional in their presentation last year, but several companies did interactive pieces that involved audience members, and this is another area of interest. This is for an outdoor marley covered stage approximately 32 x 28 feet. Each set will be 10-30 minutes. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups each day, so we'd like to hear from schools also. The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after.

Last year we received many more applications than there was room for, so if you were not selected before, please try again, perhaps with a different piece. There is always great diversity in the programming. To apply, email
what you would like to perform, including a digital press packet and video link. Professional companies- 10 to 30', pre-professional under 10'. If it is a new work, include projected music. If you were in it last season, please let us know if you are interested this year, and what work you might like to do. There is an honorarium for all professional companies.

This year, as last, the festival is produced by Louise Reichlin, Los Angeles Choreographers & Dances in conjunction with Jan Kain, People's Place San Pedro. More news about our partners to follow. We are currently looking for a Music Producer Partner, and for Volunteers.  Please email us.

Just 3 weeks left to contribute to our 2014-2015 Season
