The Wooden Floor

“It’s nice to know that some young dancers in our midst are having their skills and perceptions shaped by contemporary work.” Los Angeles Times

The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

The Wooden Floor, the Santa Ana youth company composed of gifted dancers from underserved communities, has been inspiring audiences and elevating young lives for 30 years. Its latest program offers works by Herb Alpert Award-winning choreographer Susan Rethorst, New York’s Ivy Baldwin, and company artistic director Melanie Ríos Glaser. Known for a collaborative dancemaking process that enables youth to work side by side with internationally recognized choreographers, The Wooden Floor’s vision of contemporary dance dissolves ethnic, gender, class and age stereotypes in the service of creating transformative art.

The Herb Alpert Award in the Arts, a fellowship program that supports innovative practitioners in the fields of dance, film/video, music, theater and visual arts, is administered by CalArts on behalf of The Herb Alpert Foundation.
