Artist Profile

Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers, founded in 1979, is a non-profit dance organization composed of two professional companies, Louise Reichlin & Dancers and Zapped Taps/Alfred Desio.  The collaborative group strives to develop new inventive programs for multigenerational and multicultural families; to enrich, enlarge, educate, and encourage audience participation; and to create high quality concert work opportunities for Los Angeles performing artists.  Louise Reichlin’s work, including dance, narration, and multimedia, draws inspiration from a variety of different cultures, evoking an awareness that we are all related.  Desio's highly experimental and innovative dance techniques use Tap-Tronics (an interactive electronic system invented by Desio) that allows the artist to play musical instruments through his taps.  The collaborative group has received financial support from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Plaza de la Raza, Los Angeles; the XXIII Olympiad, Los Angeles; Orange County Museum of Art; Orange County Performing Arts Center; Lincoln Center Out of Doors, New York; and the Las Vegas Cultural Affairs Department.
