  • One Israeli creation for the weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    3 weeks ago

    You probably don’t need an introduction to Hora - the traditional Israeli dance, but you probably didn’t know that it is not originating in Israel at all. This fun circle dance is originating in the Balkans, and its name (spelled differently in different countries) is cognate to...

  • Yiddish swing

    December 10, 2013 | 4:47 pm

    During the 1930s and ’40s, even as young people across America were swing dancing to the beat of such Jewish bandleaders as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Harry James, a vibrant musical subculture dubbed “Yiddish swing” was flourishing in an L.A. enclave, according to Tali Tadmor, a...

  • ‘Fluid Infinities’ displays architecture in motion at the Hollywood Bowl

    August 28, 2013 | 12:17 pm

    June 12, 2013 | 4:30 pm

    Of the many upbeat ways to describe the dance culture in Los Angeles — “hungry,” “pioneering,” “innovative,” “risk taking” — it is probably best characterized as striving. Even the most enthused of local enthusiasts admit there is something unrealized about the dance scene here,...

  • Unleashing dance, offstage

    March 6, 2013 | 4:31 am

    Choreographer Heidi Duckler isn’t content simply to make works for a stage. To her, the whole of Los Angeles, the whole of the world, even, is fit for dancing. Why leap across a theater floor when you can glide around the lobby of an office building? Why spin atop sprung wood when...
