“Rousing, infectiously enthusiastic performances by fine dancers.  There’s much to enjoy about the Lula Washington Dance Theater.” The New York Times

Founded in 1980 in inner city Los Angeles by Lula Washington and her husband, Erwin Washington, this vibrant troupe is known for powerful, high-energy performances, unique choreography, and works that are rooted in African-American culture and history.  The dance company does works that tell stories that examine aspects of African-American history and current issues. LWDT celebrated its 35th Anniversary in 2015. During its first 35 years LWDT danced across the globe, from the United States to Russia, China, Brazil, Kosovo, Germany, and other countries. In addition to performing, the company has a passionate commitment to education and community outreach both at home and on tour. The Company has its own dance school in the inner city area of South Los Angeles.

This season’s dance series is sponsored by SHS Foundation.
