Since its bold beginning in 2006 Executive Producer Jamie Nichols has engaged diverse and electrifying dance talent from the greater Los Angeles area. Each year Celebrate Dance�s annual dance production grows in applause and accolades from both dancers and audience alike. Celebrate Dance has presented 40 dance companies to over 10,000 enthusiastic audience members in the annual event and has served as a platform for artists to enhance their craft, develop a foundation of support and propel their careers locally, nationally and abroad. Each participating dance company can also boast being part of critically acclaimed, seamlessly produced productions at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale.
Celebrate Dance was created to provide an opportunity for recognized and emerging dance companies and choreographers from the greater Los Angeles area to present their work, while at the same time fostering a sense of community and achievement consistent with the production of high quality concert dance in a respected theatrical venue.
From its inception, Celebrate Dance has always reached out to community youth, inviting them to the yearly event without expense. Thus far more than 2,000 students from local schools have seen the production. Special thanks to the Flourish Foundation who provided initial support in 2010, allowing Celebrate Dance to expand its community engagement efforts with the launch of the Master Class Series, bringing a professional dance workshop into the classroom for dance students at Bancroft Howe Middle School in Hollywood. In its fourth year The Master Class Series continues to provide a rewarding experience for both student and instructor. Due to budget cuts and lack of school funding; this Master Class Series is the only outside program for dance students at Bancroft Howe Middle School. The students look forward with anticipation each year for this opportunity provided by Celebrate Dance.
