TO IL(LUME)INATE IS TO BRIGHTEN WITH LIGHT
To curate light from darkness. Lume was founded and launched in August 2020, in the midst of the Pandemic. We wanted to create a safe place for our dancers to continue to find that light each week by having a home here with us in our online community. As we have moved forward we have also adapted into hosting our classes in person in North Hollywood, CA at Evolution Studios.
We present to you LUME, a non-competitive, pre-professional / professional dance training program and Collective with a focus on industry experience & preparation for the dancer. Founded in Los Angeles, CA by MaryAnn Chavez and Monika Felice Smith.
LUME is designed to challenge creative boundaries while strengthening the professional and pre professional dancer on a MENTAL, EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL LEVEL.
LUME DANCE COLLECTIVE is a select group of professional movers hand picked to represent our training program.
LUME TRAINING PROGRAM provides a place for all. We offer two separate programs, SPARK and LIGHT, that focus on intensive technical conditioning in ballet, jazz, contemporary, commercial hip hop & for our adults heels foundation from working dancers and industry choreographers. We also offer a program for creatives, IGNITE. In this program we dive into the behind the scenes of being a choreographer, teacher and artist.
