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.

Beautiful performance, well worth going to. My wife would give it 4 stars. Considering how little the goldstar tickets cost us it was a steal!

Didn't like the dance troupe or the choreography. They were not together, with the music or solid in their technique

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


Luckman audiences are lucky to have had many of Raiford Rogers’ works premiered before them on the Luckman stage before the works have gone on to receive acclaim around the world, from New York to Europe to Latin America.

Raiford Rogers, a Los Angeles-based choreographer, is the director of both the Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet and the Los Angeles Chamber Ballet, as well as choreographer in residence at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His work has been performed throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America. The recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts choreographer fellowships, Rogers serves on numerous arts panels, most recently as a judge for the Alberto Vilar Global Fellowships. He also directs and hosts “Artshift,” which profiles leading Los Angeles artists and architects and airs as part of “Life & Times” on KCET (PBS).
