We’re back! We made it to #VailDance!

L.A. Dance Project has already performed a few times at Vail Dance Festival. And the audience LOVES them!!

We made this video of Janie Taylor of New York City Ballet & Carla Korbes in rehearsal to give a sneak peek of Benjamin Millepied’s In Silence We Speak. 

We love creating these behind-the-scenes looks, letting audiences in on the hard work and creative process dancers are doing every day before they perform!!

LA Dance Project performed Benjamin Millepied’s Hearts And Arrows for Opening Night of the Festival. The first time I saw the company perform this piece was at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival last year.

I remember being so captivated by this piece – the dancers are so technical and precise and the formations and fluidity of the piece are so unique. I was thrilled to see the company perform it again!!
