BODYTRAFFIC

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Based in Los Angeles, Bodytraffic uses the creative spirit of the city it calls home to fulfill its mission of delivering performances that inspire audiences simply to love dance. Since its inception in 2007, the company has held its place at the forefront of the concert dance world with a compelling style that “suggests invention, attitude, and urban edge” (The Boston Globe). Widely acclaimed for its “peerless dancers” who “can do it all from hip-hop to ballet” (LA Dance Chronicle), the company’s repertoire includes the works of renowned contemporary choreographers like Kyle Abraham, Ohad Naharin, Hofesh Shechter, Victor Quijada, Arthur Pita, Fernando Magadan, and Micaela Taylor.

Bodytraffic made its Hollywood Bowl debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2016, and is currently company-in-residence at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. In 2015 President Barack Obama’s administration selected Bodytraffic to be United States cultural ambassadors to Israel and Jordan through DanceMotion USA, a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. State Department. Bodytraffic also served as cultural ambassadors of the United States in South Korea (2016), Algeria (2017–2018), and Indonesia (2018).
