The Brand Associates Dance Series presents top dance companies from Southern California performing site-specific work in non-traditional performance spaces around Brand Library. The Dance Series is sponsored by the Brand Associates. The performances are followed by a reception and an opportunity to meet the artists. Performances run between 60 - 90 minutes without intermission. This series began in the 1960's as part of the Brand Library and Art Center's mission to promote all aspects of Art.
Artists interested in creating work specific to the space are encouraged to apply. Artists are encouraged to visit the location.
