- First revival of complete The Tennis Dances since 1999, our signature 1979 work.
Since 1979, REICHLIN'S LA CHOREOGRAPHERS & DANCERS has created works reviewed as "wildly theatrical and fun". The Tennis Dances- "Brilliant...provocative...cinematic" "Clever evocations of theatre dance styles...everything from Fokine and Graham to Bejart and beyond, all unified by rackets and nets and tennis balls." Dance Magazine/ LA Times

- Tap Dance Widows Club is "Spectacular, moving, uplifting!"
Past & present meet for an eclectic celebration of life in Tap Dance Widows Club, a 50' film / live production that tells a story of the love of three performers for their late husbands and the bond it created between them. "The interweaving of time, of distinctly different worlds through both video and dance, makes this piece not only unique, but deeply touching." exploredance.com Apr 9-11 at 7:15 pm, Apr 12 at 2:00 pm
