Seeing dance up close and personal can be something thrilling—as long as the choreography and performers are up to terpsichorean snuff. That was mostly the case when the 12-member L.A. Dance Project performed Program C as part of its L.A. Dances Festival that ran for 10 days in November (Programs A and B ran September 26-October 25). A bold undertaking by the troupe founded by Benjamin Millepied in 2012, the festival featured six world premieres, 10 works and one revival.
