The L.A. Contemporary Dance Company (LACDC) is a community-minded, non-profit repertory company devoted to the creation and promotion of cutting edge contemporary dance by Los Angeles artists. We believe in the transformative power of an artistic experience, and seek to engage, educate, perform for, and connect with all people. We provide a platform for artists to express their unique voice and cultivate their vision in a safe and supportive space. This environment enables artists, students and audiences to experiment and grow together as we celebrate our diversity and provide equitable opportunities for people to move and be moved by dance.
LACDC has presented work at prestigious venues throughout L.A. including Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, The Broad Stage, Ford Amphitheatre, L.A. Theatre Center, Odyssey Theatre, Alex Theatre, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Broad Contemporary Art Museum, and Natural History Museum. Other notable performances include Lincoln Center (NYC), Kennedy Center (DC), Newman Center for the Performing Arts (Denver), ODC Theater (San Francisco), Laguna Beach Art Museum, and Palm Springs Art Museum. The company has also toured internationally with sold out performances in Argentina and New Zealand. In 2018, LACDC was proud to be the first American headlining company to perform for Tempo Dance Festival in Auckland.
Additionally, LACDC often expands its reach to collaborate with key artists and brands in the entertainment industry. The company joined indie rock band Foster the People on their 2013 summer tour, which included performing for over 50,000 at the Firefly Festival in Dover, Delaware. The company has also collaborated with major brands for the commercial campaigns of Samsung, American Apparel, and Hikvision USA and was recently featured in music videos for Vitamin String Quartet & K-Pop star Sulli.
