Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers

Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers is a nonprofit organization founded by Louise Reichlin and Alfred Desio in 1979. It is comprised of two companies: Reichlin’s company Louise Reichlin & Dancers and Alfred Desio’s Zapped Taps. In 2007 Alfred Desio passed away.

Its mission is: “to create high-quality, innovative concert work, communicate to a diverse audience by infusing dance with the cultural influences found in LA, and to enlarge an educated dance audience in populations typically underexposed to the arts, especially youth. By involving audiences with participatory activities we explore humanistic themes. In this way, LA C&D is committed to using dance as a unifying force that crosses cultural, generational, language and socio-economic lines.”
