2020 Year End Campaign

 

$50,000 Goal

 

For the last 15 years, Laguna Dance Festival has presented internationally renowned dancers to delight and entertain our village patrons and to educate and inspire our local students.  As the pandemic has devastated the dance world by closing down theaters, practice studios and tours, LDF has found ways to continue bringing dance to our community, including free, live performances on the Promenade, free classes and virtual performance via our digital media outlets.

We are also proud that we have been able to continue to provide vital professional opportunities to dancers in need of places to dance.  To this end we are currently focusing on commissioning dancers and choreographers to create new works.  Our first commissioned piece will be performed by internationally acclaimed Flamenco dancer, Irene Rodriguez, during our year end campaign evening Dance Like No One’s Watching.

Your generous contribution to our year end fundraising campaign will help us keep dance alive
and thriving in Laguna Beach during the pandemic and beyond.
