Now in its seventh installment, LA Commons’ Trekking LA Tour Series presents a new theme in 2013: Dancing to a Global Beat. With each Los Angeles neighborhood comes its own nooks and crannies, all of which distinguish it from the next neighborhood. Essentially, each neighborhood has its own beat, one that is created by artistic and social means. This year, the Trekking LA Series will give you the chance to celebrate the different beats of Los Angeles with the local people while getting to the know the deep cultural histories rooted in the communities.
In addition to the food and art, each tour will be accompanied by a music or dance event to get your groove on. We kick off the series at MacArthur Park on August 17. Are you a K-Pop fanatic? Or maybe you’re just curious to see what all the hype is about? Join us at Levitt Pavilion for a night of fun, live music, lots of dancing (show off your moves in a dance contest!), and of course, food.
We’ll give you plenty of other opportunities to explore the dance culture of Los Angeles neighborhoods with a stomach full of delicious grub and a head full of new knowledge. Keep an eye out for our official tour schedule to check out the festivals or performances you’re most interested in!
