The Lula Washington Dance Theatre will offer a full day of free dance performances, classes, spoken word, music, and fun activities for children via the 2015 Dance All Day Festival, which coincides with the Taste of Soul street extravaganza along Crenshaw Boulevard.
Viewers can sit and watch, or they can get up and dance on stage, or, at their seats in front of the stage. The event is designed to be fun for everybody.
All the activities take place on a large outdoor stage in the Lula Washington Dance Theatre parking lot at 3773 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016 – at the corner of Crenshaw and Coliseum. All the performances are free. Taste of Soul visitors are encouraged to drop by Lula’s, sit down, rest, watch performances, and then head back out onto Crenshaw Boulevard.
The dance company will have jumpers, a slide and an obstacle course set up for children. They will have people selling drinks, candy, popcorn and other treats for children through the day.
Performance highlights include performances by a dozen or so local dance artists, including performers and choreographers from Lula Washington Dance Theatre; Debbie Allen Dance Academy; Floricanto Dance Company and many others. Le Ballet Domboya and Marame Fe will lead adults in a 90 minute Afro-Beat dance workshop. Students from Crenshaw High School and other local schools will also perform.
From noon to 1 pm, the program will include a Gospel Power Hour where local praise dance teams will perform. People interested in Urban Ballroom dance can participate in an open workshop right after the Gospel Power Hour.
The day kicks off at 9:30 am with a ballet class for children out on the stage. The young people will learn choreography and them participate in a Festival of Tutus — each child showing off their ballet moves. Instructors will teach the children ballet routines to perform.
This activity is for children ages three and up.
