DANCESCAPE is a benefit dance concert that showcases both established and up-and-coming dancers and choreographers in Southern California while raising funds for arts programs in our public schools. It brings together students, dance enthusiasts and professionals alike in a celebration of talent and passion that gives back to the community. 100% of the profits from Dancescape productions are donated to arts and music education programs in local schools via classroom funding proposals and individual grants. Now in our 10th year, we are proud to have impacted over 6,500 public school students in Southern California.
Dancescape features original works by more than 25 different choreographers specializing in ballet, hip-hop,modern, lyrical, bellydance, jazz, burlesque, salsa, traditional Indian, breakdancing, and martial arts (to name a few). The stage alternately features soloists, small groups, and large ensembles ranging in age from middle school students to seasoned professionals. Thanks to the support of Los Angeles dance agencies like Bloc, DDO, Go2Talent, and Clear Talent Group, past productions have included dancers and choreographers from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and AMERICA’s GOT TALENT, and AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW as well as dancers who have toured and performed with Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson.
Dancescape strives to be both representative and inclusive of the dance world, and to bring this talent together as a force for positive change by creating opportunity not only for the artists involved, but for the recipients of the numerous programs funded by each show. Since the first show in 2004, Dancescape has raised thousands of dollars for:
Los Angeles Unified School District art & music programs
Los Angeles Leadership Academy
The Passion For Dance Project
