Continuing to bring world class dance performances to Truckee and Lake Tahoe that lets local children interact with the performers, Arts For the Schools will present the Lula Washington Dance Theater on November 9th at 6pm at the Cal Neva.
The opening piece will be performed by InnerRhythms Dance Theater.
Lula Washington Dance Theater choreographed The Little Mermaid and Avatar.
“Live jazz. Athletic bodies, jumping and rousing, infectiously enthusiastic performances by fine dancers. Ms. Washington’s choreographic vocabulary comprises modern dance, low crouching and stamping movements inspired by African dance and, occasionally, ballet. It’s a perfectly pleasant and functional mix, and in ‘We Wore the Mask’ Ms. Washington displays a sure theatricality that is captivating.” – New York Times

As art education has all but vanished in our public schools, Arts For the Schools bridges this gap by providing professional art instruction and performing arts programs in our local schools. This is made possible through grants, foundations, private contributions and Parent Teacher Organizations who value art education in their schools.
Arts For the Schools was selected as one of a few qualifiers for the InnerState Project because of its 26 year-long history of overcoming venue challenges and bringing nationally and internationally acclaimed performers to our local schools and community at large.
