performance and it is still called local, I am reminded of the wealth of cultures and forms of dance, both professional and community, in our sprawling global city.


When I began using Netscape many years ago, I was amazed at the networking (no pun intended) possibilities, and I began planning a Southern California Dance Directory of the professional companies and the dance service organizations in our area. It quickly came to include other dance organizations that are important for dance in education and dance therapy, as well as organizations of great help assisting dance companies in Los Angeles.


The entries in the following pages are sorted alphabetically by company name, with links to websites and, where available, e-mails and director's contact information. 


This page used to be our home page when it was only on the USC server, so you may find yourself there occasionally. Go to the menus on the top to return to LA C&D if that happens.

Part of our site has always been our Dance Links page. I have gotten some e-mail from people wondering why I have not included more about social and recreational dance in Los Angeles, and quite simply, I hadn't been aware of how much there was here, and the amount of interest there is in this area of dance. So, if you check our Links with Other Dance on the Net you will now find some additional sources for this type of dance here in LA. Other e-mail and calls asked if we could post some dance positions and rehearsal studios in Southern CA. You asked for it and dance positions now has its own link and rehearsal studios are included in the directory. If you have dance work in Southern CA, let us know, and we can post it for you.


These pages were first developed in 1995 by Louise Reichlin (myself) with assistance from Mary Kat Kennedy with Deep "Kim" Singh as consultant, both from the original Multimedia Fellowship Program at USC. We all learned our first HTML together. Our first edition was in June 1995. Since then, I have been maintaining the site. I welcome comments and response to these pages – please feel free to contact me with your comments and suggestions. This latest edition was developed as a special project by Louise and Joshua Sy, our LA County Arts Intern during summer 2009.

Welcome to Southern California's link with many of the dance sites on the Web. We feature more than 500 professional Los Angeles and Southern California dance companies and organizations. We now have mirror sites both at USC where I was teaching when the Directory was created, and it is also hosted by Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers on the company site. I created this directory as a free service to help others become aware of Southern California, specifically the greater Los Angeles area, as a dance center. We arguably have more dancers and choreographers than any city in the world, and sometimes when I travel 50 miles for a
