L.A. Dance Project
The project-driven dance collective stages experimental works in traditional and nontraditional settings across Los Angeles and the globe.
Since 1985, Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) has produced hundreds of local, national, and international dance projects in iconic locations. Located in Los Angeles, California, and Portland, Oregon, the company is committed to diversity in dance through its arts education programs. The company's youth arts education program serves youth in community centers throughout Los Angeles County, focusing on multicultural, multilingual, and multi-generational populations in underserved neighborhoods. The geographic areas that HDD serves across its programs reflect the rich diversity of the L.A. area, inclusive of people of color, women, individuals living below the poverty line, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
The company is celebrated for creating site-specific performances that utilize non-traditional spaces as a creative source to engage residents with new perspectives of their community. HDD has continued to redefine the relationship between audience and art through innovative onsite projects that invite collaboration, culminating in leading-edge performances that support community engagement and pride.
