The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts will showcase the Lula Washington Dance Theatre’s 40th anniversary with three performances from Jan. 30 through Feb. 1. The program celebrates the dance company’s rich history along with new works mixing jazz, hip-hop, African movement, ballet, modern, tap and other dance styles.
The Courier spoke with founder Lula Washington about this milestone event and the dance company’s relationship with The Wallis. Washington told the Courier that the performances are designed to explore social and humanitarian issues through dance. “I look for music or statements that will help create the ideas and tell the story,” she said.
