The L.A. Contemporary Dance Company began as a business plan in an arts management class at the University of Southern California. Michelle Mierz (Executive Director), then an entrepreneurial business major in the Marshall School of Business, and Kate Hutter (Artistic Director), a Theatrical Design major and independent choreographer studying in the School of Theatre, were paired to prepare a final project; a non-profit dance company serving the Los Angeles area. With the plan drafted and a passionate team to support it, the project grew to become the realized dream that it is today. While pursuing their independent career paths and further education, these young entrepreneurs were laying the foundation for LACDC to take root in its first season, fall 2006. The successful reception of The Reveal, the company’s debut concert at Highways Performance Space in July 2005, took them to the next level of making their business plan a reality and producing dance as L.A.’s newest resident dance company, LACDC.
