I recently had the chance to speak with producer, director and choreographer Nigel Lythgoe about the upcoming LAIDF (Los Angeles International Dance Festival) taking place from April 11 to April 26 in 2020. He has partnered up with award-winning choreographer Debbie Allen to promote dance in Los Angeles and to showcase some of the best dancers and choreographers as part of a fun-filled 16 days.

The festival will feature performances, workshops and films as well as master-classes in different venues around Los Angeles, while also embracing National Dance Day. When speaking with Nigel about this upcoming event, he was very passionate about helping this be a platform for dancers -and to share the importance of raising funds for dance in LA -which is sadly, often lacking in support.

The Los Angeles International Dance Festival is not to be missed, especially if you are an aspiring or accomplished dancer -after all, you can never learn too much when it comes to dance! Above all, it will be an exciting experience with lasting memories, while witnessing some of the best dancers the city and world has to offer. Both Nigel Lythgoe and Debbie Allen are thrilled to be a part of such an amazing opportunity supporting the arts -and can’t wait to share it with all those who love and appreciate ittoo!

When asked what he likes to do in his down time, Nigel says he loves to spend time at home in his beautiful garden that is filled with many colorful flowers and fruit trees, which he finds very therapeutic to enjoy, among his busy schedule.
