L.A. Dance Project is an artist collective founded in 2012 by renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied, along with composer Nico Muhly, art consultant Matthieu Humery, Founding Producer Charles Fabius and Nicholas Britell.
L.A. Dance Project’s mission is to create new work and to revive seminal collaborations from influential dance makers.
