Delving into the Complexities of Contemporary Dance

Helios Dance Theater

Helios Dance Theater was founded in 1996 by Laura Gorenstein Miller, an L.A. choreographer whose work has premiered at global venues including the Royal Opera House in London, Lincoln Center in New York, and the Broad Stage and Royce Hall in Los Angeles. The company's mission is to serve as a vital hub for dance art in Los Angeles, with both a national and an international presence.

Through its focus on the contemporary modern genre and creative improvisation, Helios seeks to unlock and expose the mysteries of dance and to provide audiences with ample opportunities to experience its beauty. To accomplish this, the organization engages in educational outreach beyond its traditional performance repertoire, encouraging local community members to learn and engage with the art form. Further, Helios operates with an understanding of dance as interconnected with other art disciplines and routinely collaborates with composers, directors, designers, and vocalists to bring its productions to life.
