“Line Up” For a Fun Evening of Dance for Everyone!
2011-09-27 · By Editor
Anyone who likes to dance might say that there’s a care-free moment when you just feel connected – to the music, to the movement, and to other dancers. It is this kind of connection that can be experienced at “Line Up,” a multi-company dance production organized by Dancing with Long Beach. On Saturday, October 8, 2011, a full night of dance featuring two separate programs will be presented at the Long Beach Playhouse.
“Line Up” is a call to dancers, choreographers, and dance enthusiasts to come together and connect. This evening of dance will feature 14 dance companies performing almost 20 pieces in two separate programs at 5:00pm and 8:00pm. Each program will conclude with an interactive audience Q&A with choreographers.
“This is going to be a fun evening of dance for everyone! The local community and dance enthusiasts will enjoy a fun variety of dance expressions. Choreographers and dancers alike will receive the opportunity to see work from colleagues and to connect with other companies,” said Christina Domino, an organizer of the production and also a participating dance choreographer.
Line Up is Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 5:00pm and 8:00pm at the Long Beach Playhouse, 5021 E. Anaheim Street, Long Beach, CA 90804. Tickets are $12 for one show and can be purchased at LBplayhouse.org. For discounted package tickets, $20 for both shows, call the box office at 562-494-1014, extension 1.
Dancing with Long Beach is a collaborative project of the Catalyst Network of Communities that includes partners DatuganDanceTheatre, Domino Affect Dance Company, and Trade&Row. The mission is to create spaces for dance communities to teach, exhibit, and exchange with each other and the Long Beach community. The partners of the project are striving to see Long Beach as a hub that connects a supportive dance community to excited audiences.
