Young Audiences of Louisiana at Dizzy Feet Gala

Dancers from Young Audiences of Louisiana Preform at Dizzy Feet Gala

In May, dancers from Young Audiences of Louisiana’s Big Easy Award nominated dance program at Woodmere Elementary gave a special performance for Hollywood director and choreographer Adam Shankman. Mr. Shankman, whose Dizzy Feet Foundation funds after school dance programs, was so impressed by their performance that he invited the talented young dancers to come to Los Angeles and perform an original African dance piece at the Dizzy Feet’s annual gala and dance festival at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.  

This prestigious event has previously featured scholarship recipients from Julliard, Alvin Ailey and American Ballet Theater, as well as standouts from So You Think You Can Dance. Throughout June and July Young Audiences’ helped raise over seven thousand dollars to send this dance group to LA to perform on July 30th at the Dizzy Feet annual gala. 

Date of Event:
