Our annual celebration of the performing arts returned for 2021, focusing exclusively on DANCE!
We opened on Wed., September 1, with our Film division to be followed with LIVE performances, featuring 29 professional companies and schools in total. Our performances took place at Alvas Showcase on Sun., September 12 at 4 pm (vaccination cards and masks required) and, then, on the outdoor stage at Anderson Park on Sun., September 19, beginning at 1 pm (negative COVID-19 test and masks required.)
This re-introduction of the San Pedro Festival of the Arts using film and multiple performances was made possible by a federal stimulus grant supplement. The San Pedro Festival of the Arts is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and from Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn. In-kind donations from Joe Buscaino’s Los Angeles City District’s 15 office of Jacob Haik, local district director, from Alvas for the first venue of Alvas Showroom and dance flooring for Anderson Park, and from Peter Benjamins for Sound for Anderson Park.
Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers and the festival are supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture and by the California Arts Council.
