Discover Dance: Lake View Terrace

DISCOVER DANCE WITH BENITA BIKE’S DANCEART: LAKE VIEW TERRACE LIBRARY

Ever wondered how dancers create dances? On Saturday, December 3, 2pm, you can find out when Benita Bike’s DanceArt presents an interactive dance outreach program at Lake View Terrace Library, 12002 Osborne Street, Lake View Terrace. Make an afternoon of it and visit the Los Angeles Discovery Cube right next door! This FREE dance performance is suitable for adults, children, and seniors and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.
Libraries are great places to share dance and Benita Bike’s DanceArt has a long history of reaching out through dance. Now in its 36th season, this Los Angeles modern dance company knows how to introduce the soul of dance to audiences! The Company’s work stands at the crossroads of past and present, blending the music and sensibilities of the past with evocative contemporary movement.
This Lake View Terrace performance features two dances: On “Beat 3″ and “Old Postcards from Europe.” Dance reviewer Jeff Slayton of SeeDance.com describes “On Beat 3″ as “a rapid fire movement piece driven by the music Tin Play by Swedish composer Per Andreessen.” “Old Postcards from Europe” takes its inspiration from 3 late 19th/early 20th century postcards from the cities of Munich, Vienna, and Budapest. Church bells, Wallingford Riegger’s dramatic music, and the sounds of Klezmer accompany the dance.

CHOREOFUND 7

The purpose of this event is to provide a grassroots opportunity for our community to support homegrown dance-making and to bridge Luna’s composition-based curriculum and the talent of local choreographers. Thirty community members contribute $40 cash each to witness 6 different choreographers give short pitches and perform excerpts of their work. The audience gets to see a variety of styles and ideas at all stages of completion, and witness the creative process in most immediate form. At the end of the night, each person votes on who takes home the entire $1,200. To participate, reserve a space with Patricia at preedy@lunadanceinstitute.org.
