Come see a preview from a few of the 19 dance companies featured in SAN PEDRO ♥ TRI ART Festival on Saturday, August 23 from 12:30-1 pm.   Peoples Place San Pedro brings audience participation with Jan Kain and a country western performance with her partner, Steve Lelevier.  Jan heads one of San Pedro's most popular dance schools and you can learn most dance styles you can imagine yourself doing at their monthly Swing Peedro with live music or a range of dance classes.  

Louise Reichlin/ LA Choreographers & Dancers, returns for their 7th year at the Festival with her nationally known company, featuring joyous modern and contemporary dance.  Selections from "The Tennis Dances" will be featured.

Other groups at the TriArt will range from Tap of Hiroshi Hamanishi and Tap Overload to Krumping by The Underground to Blues by ENCORE Dance Co to Modern by Lula Washington Dance Theatre to aerials by Ruby Karen Project/ Orange County Aerial Arts. Featured music group is The Black Tongued Bells sponsored by the office of Don Knabe.
