Lula Washington Is Heritage Nominee

Share

Lula Washington, founder and artistic director of Lula Washington Dance Theatre, is the 2011 Heritage Honoree of the National Dance Association.

Washington will be honored at a banquet March 30 at the 2011 national convention of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance in San Diego, California. Both she and her daughter Tamica will teach master classes at the gathering.

Washington and her husband, Erwin, founded the Los Angeles-based troupe in 1980. As a dancer, teacher, and choreographer, she fuses African and Afro-Haitian dance and incorporates elements of classical ballet, modern, street, theatrical dance, and hip-hop.

She also created ritual movements and large dance sequences seen through motion-capture technology in the science-fiction film Avatar.
