The Western Arts Alliance meets in Los Angeles from August 27-30th this year. Attending will be 13 Western States of presenters, and artists and agents from all over the world. Also attending, and showcasing, are many of the Dance Resource of Greater LA members. The companies, curated by a distinguished dance panel, include 20 of many dance genres. I am delighted to be working as a producer with Laura Karlin (Invertigo Dance Theatre) on the showcase at the Moss Theater at New Roads School, which will also have 350 seats which we will market to those of you not attending WAA (attendees get in for free!). The Moss Showcase plays on August 27 from 8-11 pm. Part of the producing trio is Laurie Sefton (Clairobscur Dance Company) who is producing a "Presenters Only" showcase at Los Angeles Ballet Center on August 28 from 8-12. These showcases both have an amazing line-up (already announced on the brand new official website which has information including schedule, about the companies, videos and a way to buy tickets to the Moss Showcase for the general public.  To see trailers for both showcases, go to dance showcase video/Moss Theater and dance showcase video/LA Ballet Center. There will be complementary gourmet food truck food (free for WAA attendees) and free round-trip shuttles from the Hyatt in Century City to the venues running continuously from 7 on. My own company is on at 8:34 at the Moss (Tap Dance Widows Club) and at 10:28 at Los Angeles Ballet Center (The Patchwork Girl of Oz). Please put both incredible showcases on your calendar now.
