Students at the Lula Washington Dance Theatre (LWDT) school are rehearsing for this year’s Kwanzaa performances which are scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 28 at 7 pm and Sunday, Dec. 29 at 3 pm.
The performances will be held at the LWDT studio, 3773 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90016. It will feature a community of performers, from young students to the professional dance company, as well as local elders.
Kwanzaa is a cultural holiday, and not a religious celebration. Each year, the performance sells out and excites audiences with phenomenal drumming and dancing.
Dance critic/blogger Tony Plank wrote that the Kwanzaa concert was the best dance performance she’d seen in Los Angeles.
