This dance was originally planned for March 2020. What a joy to return to Ravel's "Bolero" and explore what it means to surrender & the impact of connection. With support from the city of West Hollywood Arts Grant Program, we offer this free outdoor dance. With a cast of eight of Los Angeles' most gorgeous dancers, we are eager to share our first in person event in over two years. Click here for more info.
