The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company was created in 1968 to realize the artistic vision of Lar Lubovitch, one of this country's foremost choreographers. The company has gained a reputation as one of the world's top-ranked modern dance companies, performing in virtually every state of the U.S., as well more than 30 other countries. Lar Lubovitch has been cited by The New York Times as "one of the ten best choreographers in the world," and the company has been called a "national treasure" by Variety.
The company exists: (1) to create new works by Lubovitch; (2) to perform those works, in its home base of New York City and around the world; and (3) to teach people of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds, in order to increase awareness and appreciation of dance. In carrying out these three main objectives, the company is also committed to collaboration and to service to the dance community as central components of LLDC's mission.
