Student at Lula Washington Dance Theatre prepares for annual Youth Recital.
It’s Recital time again!
The Lula Washington Dance Theatre (LWDT) School will present its annual Youth Dance Recital on Saturday, June 14, at 1 pm at the Japan American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC), 244 S. San Pedro Street (between 2nd and 3rd Streets), Los Angeles, CA 90012.
Each year all students at the LWDT School are encouraged to participate in the recital to showcase what they have learned.
This year LWDT is really excited about the Youth Recital’s new location in downtown Los Angeles. This will be the first time the recital will be held at the JACCC. For more than a decade LWDT has hosted its’ Youth Recital at the El Camino Marsee Auditorium. This new move to the JACCC is “what we hope to be the beginning of a long and deep relationship,” says Erwin Washington, Executive director and co-founder of the LWDT.
This year’s theme is “Legends”. This theme is in honor and celebration of legends from African decent and the Diaspora; legends of dance, culture, theatre, poetry, and music.
The Recital program will celebrate and recognize several graduating high school seniors as they prepare for their careers in college.
