LA DANCE MOVES
Please support LA Dance Moves!
Led by Artistic Director Nancy Paradis, LA Dance Moves introduces to the world a new genre of performance art. This is for the visionaries; dancers and musical artists alike, who can intimately share their stories of love, life, pain, and triumph through both sight and sound.
The mission is to inspire by touching the heart and illuminating the soul.
The Vision is to create a new genre of performance art through the collaboration of visionaries: Artists, dancers, musicians, composers and groundbreakers.
LA Dance Moves encourages the collaboration of the dancer, musician and artist to bring forward a unique experience. To date, we have created with classical, neo-classical and contemporary ballet dancers, contemporary dancers, modern dancers, B-Boy and poppers/lockers. Artists have been parkour artists, hula-hoopers, motivational speakers, narrators, actors and American sign language artist (ASL). Musicians include violinist and piano cover artists, cellist, vocalists, electronic dance music (EDM) composers, Grammy award winning new age pianists, film composers and a full wind ensemble.
LA Dance Moves has exciting plans in 2021 to create new and innovative experiences of the heart, mind and soul. We are actively looking for Business Sponsors who wish to be part of this growing company, and to touch audiences both locally and globally.
