Louise Reichlin & Dancers

Dance At the Stone House


FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. An interactive site specific

work that uses audience participation to design a dance work

based on the unusual architecture and art that is the Sun

Valley Youth Arts Center. The name comes because of the

unusual use of native river rocks set into the architecture and

interior of the building.


Built in 1925, the building, designated a City Cultural Historical monument, has been transformed into a first-of-its-kind art education center in the East San Fernando Valley.


In 2007 we debuted our original  work Dance At the Stone House.  The unique use and look of the historic building, and the restriction of only six people in a room inspired Louise Reichlin to create this work for 4th through 6th grade students. She contacted Jesus “Chuy c/s” Rangel, the Youth Arts Center Director, and the partnership has continued. Working with our professional company dancers, the students explore the site and artwork there in small groups, learning and creating movement phrases that are then integrated into an original dance based on both architecture and movement. It is a completely kinetic approach to the building as the students first learn about the building, view the art, and also learn phrases that are part of the dance. The children are included in the audience that is on either the outside lawn or inside room. They are also part of the performance at the appropriate time as Louise Reichlin & Dancers perform a completed work that also includes the ten short phrases and 60-80 students. They are set to music on a patio area that is visible to both the inside and outside audiences’ areas. Schools this year are San Fernando El and Haskell El.
