Dubbed the "Coachella of dance," Dancerpalooza assembles some of the country's top choreographers and ensembles, including Stacey Tookey, Jaci Royal, Movement Lifestyle and Shaping Sound, for a six-day festival celebrating all things dance. Originally seen on the reality television series All the Right Moves, Shaping Sound features Emmy nominees and stars of So You Think You Can Dance in an exhilarating mashup of musical genres and dance styles. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the cast. Under the artistic direction of Jaci Royal, Royal Flux features some of L.A.'s finest contemporary dancers as they push the boundaries of movement through dance and athleticism for a spectacle of light in Shining. Stacey Tookey and Still Motion's Moments Defined is a multi-disciplinary dance performance that captures the moments that shape and define our existence. Collaborating with artists from around the world, Movement Lifestyle uses urban dance to explore diverse cultures. Winner of the 2013 Dance Awards for Studio of the Year, JCSOD presents its first full-length work, A Man's World, the story of a lonely man looking for human connection. Learn More
9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

Raiford Rogers' programs are innovative and well-staged using only lighting to change moods. This program was typical of other RR programs I've seen in the past, but surprisingly short. At the end of the program, my friend and I looked at each other and thought, "That's was it?" The Luckman Arts Complex is a nice space for dance and there are good sightlines from every seat.
Quotes & Highlights
“…bracingly contemporary and superbly aware of how much ballet can express without descending to desperate crossover strategies or hard-sell hyper-athleticism” —Los Angeles Times
“Los Angeles-based choreographer Raiford Rogers has discarded the pointe shoe and invented a distinctly original style of modern ballet.” —Back Stage
