The SAN PEDRO TRI ART Festival is a free family event on September 27-28 featuring dance, music & crafts in Ports O'Call Village on the waterfront. This will be its 8th year, the 4th at this beautiful outside location. Last year we were awarded our first Department of Cultural Affairs, City of LA, Festival Grant (it has a roll-over into 2014's festival) and a CPV grant from the CAC. This year there will again be an honorarium for professional companies.

This is for an outdoor marley covered stage approximately 32 x 28 feet. Each set will be 10-30 minutes. The programs open with 2-3 pre-professional groups each day, so we'd like to hear from schools also. The turn out on each day was several thousand over the days events. We anticipate good coverage for the event, both before and after.


The festival is a special project of Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers, Louise Reichlin Director. We hope to host many of you again, and excited about new groups and works we haven't seen. To clarify, all professional dance companies will get honorarium based on length of set, and pre-professional groups will again open the programs as a showcase. Honorariums for professional companies: This year there will again be an honorarium for professional dance companies: $300- Professional companies 20-30 min, $150- Professional companies 10-19min.  There will also be a series of previews.


For live music applications please contact music producers Rick Conkey or Greg Neethling.  


This year, as last, our partners include Alvas/ Matt Lincir, Spirit Cruises and Ports O'Call Restaurant/ Jayme Wilson, LA County District 4/Don Knabe Supervisor, and LA City District 15/ Joe Buscaino, Councilman, and Rickenbacker Guitars. New media partner is Joshua J. Stecker, San Pedro Today, and producing partners include Jan Kain, Peoples' Place, Rick Conkey, Blue Water Green Earth, and Greg Neethling, FreshBoks Music. Our company has also been awarded an LA County grant for an intern who will spend 1/2 of the full time position on this project.




Is Your Company Listed in the So. CA Dance Directory?
The Southern CA Dance Directory that I began in 1995 is alive and well with over 566 listings of professional dance companies and related organizations. This free service is accessed by thousands of people each month, and I've heard that dance jobs have often come about through the information! But....if the wrong email or phone number is there, it's up to you to contact us and it will be fixed, usually within 24 hours. If you are not there and would like to be, please email the information in the format that is there. This is a special project that is a labor of love - no grants funds involved - so if you want to use it, please help keep it up to date. You can reach us at 213-385-1171 or

Special Thanks

Special thanks to you for your support!
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission and DCA City of Los Angeles grants are all matching grants, and go towards the TriArt Festival in September,  2 free school performances in the Valley, and our ongoing educational and performance projects.
Our school activities funded by Don Knabe's Educational Partnership Grant need matching funds. Our Hatchfund Drive in December and January helped us take the Tap Dance Widows Club showcase to new York and you can still see the video on the site.  New funds from you can take us to any location in LA or or further.  If you donate, you can help us get to your location!!
