One of the longest running dance companies in Los Angeles, Louise Reichlin & Dancers /Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers has been taking part in an educational project at Rosa Parks Learning Center. The company has 42 years of experience bringing high quality dance education to students and is keenly aware of the importance arts in education plays in the lives of these young people. Their working directly with dancers, musicians, and visual artists ignites their imagination, creativity, and self-discovery. The arts instruct young students about the rest of the world and what possibilities lie ahead for them in their own communities and beyond. Part II of this project is streaming now on Vimeo now December 15 – 25, 2021.
“Movement is the primary way we communicate when we are born, and dance uses this as a source of inspiration. LA C&D creates and presents innovative dance works with imagination, feelings, and communication being the inspiration for every piece,” states Reichlin in her press release.
During PART 2 of the residency this semester 7 classes have been working with their teaching artists in a 5-session dance residency to learn the words and movement from three multicultural dances the Tanko Bushi from Japan, the Kol Dodi from Israel, and the Lamba from the 14th century Mali Empire in West Africa. Some of the students are also performing a Chiapanecas, a traditional Mexican folk dance. Our Dance Teaching Artists for PART 2 at Rosa Parks Learning Center are Elizabeth Ann Poinsetta, Mcknnly Moren, and Eve Metsäranta. Part 1 with 8 different classes was in early fall with Teaching Artists including Elizabeth Ann Poinsetta, Coree McKee Gonzalez, and Katie Mcculla, with their hybrid performance November 3. – Louise Reichlin & Dancers /Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers press release.
