The program will also include live DJ sets by Filip giving you the opportunity to get up and dance to your own beat before each act.

About the dance company

The L.A. Contemporary Dance Company began as a business plan in an arts management class at the University of Southern California. Michelle Mierz (Executive Director), then an entrepreneurial business major in the Marshall School of Business, and Kate Hutter (Artistic Director), a Theatrical Design major and independent choreographer studying in the School of Theatre, were paired to prepare a final project; a non-profit dance company serving the Los Angeles area. With the plan drafted and a passionate team to support it, the project grew to become the realized dream that it is today. 

The L.A. Comtemporary Dance Company (LACDC) is a non-profit, repertory dance company that performs a diverse repertoire of modern, ballet and jazz influenced works representative of L.A.'s vibrant culture. LACDC is the stomping ground for the next generation of dance artists and collaborators to the craft the future of dance in L.A. and beyond. Dance Spirit magazine has called LACDC one of the "25 Things We Love About Los Angeles" and describes the company as a "vibrant, youthful repertory company under the creative leadership of rising star Kate Hutter."

About Filip Zachary

Filip Zachary’s background ranges from piano and guitar since age 12 to Ableton and Reson by age 17. With deep influences in industrial music, drum and bass, breakbeat, trance, house, idm, and others, he keeps true to the fact that no genre should be specific. His music keeps everybody on their toes, and their ears being drained by the speaker monitors, that will certainly be blasting at all times to get the proper affect.
