On the heels of choreographing nearly 800 dancers for the Olympic opening ceremonies in Sochi, Daniel Ezralow brings his L.A.-based company, Ezralow Dance, to the Ford. Hailed as "one of the best American dancer-choreographers now working" by the Chicago Tribune, Ezralow has left his stamp all over the world from Las Vegas (he choreographed Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil) to Broadway (he designed the jaw-dropping aerial tangos of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark) to Paris (he worked with the world-famous Paris Opera Ballet). Now the choreographer The New York Times calls "unforgettably gutsy" premieres a commissioned piece with live music under the stars. Learn More

'Alohafest' at the Ford Theatre definitely saved the best for last with 'Nonosina' whose Tahitian and Samoan music, dance and drums were breathtakingly magnificent throughout their set, culminating in the Samoan fire dance. The host of 'Iron Chef America' Mark Dacascos, was on stage briefly to introduce his singer-songwriter sister, and I wish he had been chosen to host the entire event, instead of the pair of radio dj's who slowed down the pace of the show.

Great young talent, exciting native dancing, great costumes and high energy the whole night.. easy shuttle pick up from the universal city metro shuttle stop to the Ford. wonderful area to picnic and have a glass of wine before the show. Great...continued
This is an outdoor venue. Please be prepared for the weather.
Picnicking on the grounds is welcome, and there are food and drink concessions on site.
