ABOUT THE HOLLYWOOD TOUR
The Hollywood tour is produced by SOURCEDANCE and Urban Empire with experience in organizing numerous tours throughout the world since 1985. These organizations produce conventions, workshops, competitions, studios and a full dancers clothing line. The tours are lead by Teri Knapp who has been instrumental in producing dancers who have danced with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Britney Spears and many others. After the first tour, she realized how important touring is for the dancer to move to the next level. In addition to the dance, the tour is very educational and fun as the dancers have the opportunity to live the life of a LA Dancer. The tour is organized with some flexibility to meet the needs of the dancers who are on a particular tour.
The Hollywood Tour(s) is the most incredible dance experience of a lifetime! Dancers are offered the opportunity to train with some of the most incredible choreographers and teachers in LA, audition for MSA – LA’s top Dance Agency, shop, sightsee AND perform in LA’s most prestigious dance show, Choreographer’s Carnival OR compete in the US National Dance Finals OR work with us to create your own customized tour in the US, Australia or Europe.
