Los Angeles Dance Foundation was founded in 1978 and continues to promote and cultivate America’s dance legacies.
The Los Angeles Dance Foundation’s mission is to establish a living museum of modern dance reconstructions and commission works for diverse audiences in performance, outreach, and arts learning settings.
In 2010, the mission diversified with Dance Treasures Project, launched to promote knowledge about the distinguished artists and dance professionals, whose work was cultivated in California and had significant impact on the field. DTP’s services facilitate creative interactions among the key stakeholders in the dance legacy continuum:
- Dance professionals and companies
- Archivists and the institutions with dance collections
- Future generations of artists and the general public
From 1994 to 2004, LADF supported the American Repertory Dance Company as its performance entity.
