Enrollment is open for two distinct Summer Dance programs at Lula Washington Dance Theatre — one for newer dancers just starting out, and another for those who are ready to train seriously, take wings, and fly as performers. Both programs meet from June 22 – Aug. 2 at the Lula Washington Dance Theatre studio, 3773 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016.
Beginner and intermediate students ages 7 to 13 should enroll in the Creative Expressions Dance Camp. This program meets M-F from 8 am to 5 pm. Extended hours are available for an extra fee. This camp introduces students to a range of dance styles from ballet to African; Hip Hop to tap and Caribbean and Jazz. Students go on culturally and educationally enriching field trips and they dance in a culminating concert. The focus is fun, enrichment, physical fitness, and teaching of information to help improve student health.
Advanced students, whether teens or young adults, will focus on training and growing as dancers. They will take classes to build flexibility, control, strength, stamina, and technique. Intensive students will learn and perform choreography by LWDT’s resident and guest choreographers. Exceptional students will have an opportunity to audition for LWDT’s company and for specific projects.
Lula Washington Dance Theatre encompasses a professional dance company that annually tours around the United States and to international stages with choreography by Lula Washington, Tamica Washington-Miller, and some of the most important names in African-American Dance.
The organization has its own School where it grooms performers from tiny tots up through adult professionals. Within the school, LWDT hosts a number of performance ensembles including a Children’s Dance Ensemble; A Youth Dance Ensemble; a Teen/Adult Professional Development Workshop Ensemble; and apprentice dancers who work with the Company.
