Come be behind the scenes of a commercial dance video production and watch dancers explore the jazz funk dance style, including interactive projection design. Directed by second-year Master of Fine Arts candidate LJ Foust, this performance is rooted in jazz funk and showcases choreography by Lando Coffey, Jose Tena (Boy Boi), and Foust. The show is driven by music and Foust's research into this emerging style that brought him to Los Angeles and China.
