MUSIC+DANCE: L.A.

" ...a seductive and engaging synthesis of dance and music. " (Los Angeles Magazine)

Join us for the third season of MUSIC+DANCE:L.A. pairing live chamber music and original ballets, presented by the American Contemporary Ballet in association with The Da Camera Society. Ballet becomes pure dance when ACB’s highly skilled ballerinas perform to great music played by an A-list chamber music ensemble, creating "...a multifaceted snapshot of beautiful choreography crisply integrated with music" (Los Angeles Magazine). Following each performance, ACB DanceSpace is filled with live jazz as the audience, dancers and musicians gather on the dance floor for a reception and lively conversation.
