City Ballet of Los Angles is a non profit dance school in Los Angeles that I have been working with for almost 3 years now. Robyn Gardenhire, the founder and lead choreographer has called me to document and produce many events at CBLA. This piece is to showcase the various genres of dance CBLA teaches to its students. Yuka Fukuda is the modern dance instructor and CBLA and shared with us her process and why she loves teaching dance.
Just moving to LA and exploring the city, I ended up in the Last Book Store on the second floor staring into Andrea's studio space. Immediately taken back by the colors and characters in her work, I without hesitation asked Andrea if I could create a piece on her. She agreed and for the past year I have been meeting with Andrea in her studio and various gallery shows to document how amazing she is. You can find out more about Andrea, her work and upcoming events at andreabogdan.com.
I met Cara and SHV in 2012 when I first picked up the camera. She had such a fascinating story and I wanted nothing more than to support her and her vision. SHV, which she started, is a non profit that helps homeless veterans get back on their feet by helping them and providing them with the tools they need to adapt back into the motions of everyday life. This is the promo and below you can find the short documentary we created.
