Another year of creating extraordinary art in unexpected locations, and bringing dance education to students who would not otherwise have access, is coming to a close-and we want to celebrate all we've accomplished!

A small sample of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre's 2016 highlights:

  • Performed in the streets of Havana
  • Created work around Los Angeles on a 15-foot steel fish, raising awareness about environmental issues
  • Taught site-specific dance to youth and seniors in Inglewood, culminating in our first intergenerational public performance
  • Provided dance workshops for students in Korea via live-streaming video
  • Created a multi-disciplinary production inspired by months of interviews Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre conducted with Central Wholesale Market staff and vendors

And so much more!

Now we celebrate with our annual gala!

Join us Saturday, October 1, on the open-air patio at Michael J's in the heart of Chinatown. We'll start with a 7:30pm cocktail hour, followed by an 8:00pm dinner catered by Far Bar.

We're excited to honor two incredible people at the event!

  • Albert Wolsky, two-time Oscar winning costume designer
  • Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD, urban planner and President Obama appointee to the National Council on the Arts

Other fun stuff: live music by Erinn Monique & Beat Mosaic and a special dance performance-a sneak preview of an upcoming Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre piece!
