DanceSpot

performance series at Hyperion Arts

Studio A Dance in Silver Lake (Silverlake) presents a series of dance concerts in our intimate venue, DanceSpot. Our goal is to provide a performance space where local companies can show their work and audiences can see dancers up close. Our black box theatre displays tremendous lighting options, and every performance is videoed and shared with the performer at no cost.

Often choreographers may not have a place to perform,

be it because of limited repertoire, or lack of funds to rent a venue.

We at DanceSpot understand the dilemma and want to help to share your art.

E-mail: dancespotla@aol.com
 Studio A Dance in the HYPERION ARTS COMPLEX
2306 Hyperion Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Note: DanceSpot will only occur when we have more than six submissions.

 Setup

* Approximately one week prior to performance, each company techs for 15 minutes at DanceSpot to get a feel of the space and to collaborate on lighting cues which we will program for you.
* One large shared dressing room is available for all dancers

* company size limed to 8 performers, unless otherwise arranged with Bill or Cristine
* Audience seating capacity is 55, and tickets will be $20 each ($25 at the door without reservations). No comps. Only one exception: If the choreographer is not dancing in his or her piece, we will comp that person as an audience member. Comps are non-transferable. Reservations made through Studio A Dance.

* We will post your dance description and dance photo on this page prior to each show so that you can link friends.

* Note: because of the nature of our theatre, floorwork is unable to be seen by much of the audience if performed downstage, so we suggest keeping the floorwork to mid-stage and upstage. Secondly, rosin is not allowed on our floor.

QUOTA: We ask that choreographers/performers meet the audience quota as follows, and we request that one performer from each dance donate 15 minutes to help strike after the show:
a. Soloists must bring 3 audience members.

b. Duets: six

c. Trios: seven

d. Quartets and above: eight

e. we ask that reservations be made by the close of Wednesday of performance week so we can get an accurate head count.

(FYI: proceeds from Box office cover mounting expenses and theater improvements)
