L.A. Contemporary Dance

L.A. Contemporary Dance

The L.A. Contemporary Dance Company (LACDC) is a non-profit organization and a resident repertory dance company of Los Angeles. LACDC is recognized by the community as a source of professional and innovative concert dance performing a diverse repertoire of modern, ballet and jazz influenced works representing the vibrant culture of L.A. By affording choreographers and dancers the opportunity to create concert length work in an experimental and collaborative environment, LACDC hopes to foster the development of new forms in the contemporary dance genre relevant to audiences.

LACDC was co-founded by Kate Hutter (Artistic Director) and Michelle Mierz (Executive Director) in the Fall of 2003. What originally began as a class project at the University of Southern California has now expanded into a professional dance company. Since its incorporation in May of 2005, LACDC has had a successful reception of their work at a variety of venues throughout Los Angeles including their resident space, the Brockus Project Space in the Brewery Arts Complex of downtown L.A.; the Ford Amphitheatre; The Broad Stage; L.A. County Museum of Art;, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion; Nate Holden Performing Arts Center and Highways Performance Space.

LACDC has self-produced work as well as participated in a number of festivals over the past three years, providing the opportunity to collaborate with more than 75 different artists including dancers, choreographers, composers, designers, photographers, filmmakers and educators. LACDC is excited to continue engaging artists in thoughtful and inspired creative processes, and serving the community with inviting and invigorating dance experiences including performances, classes and educational workshops.
