Last night, Saturday, December 10, Benjamin Millepied and L.A. Dance Project hosted their annual show stopping gala at the Theatre at Ace Hotel. In a review by the Hollywood Reporter, “Mr. Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project has thrown down the slipper in declaring the city’s standing in the ballet world. Through four exquisite pieces, Millepied and his troupe wowed audiences at the Ace Hotel during a two-night run on Friday and Saturday.”

The program featured four magnificent pieces including Millepied’s “On The Other Side” with a set designed by LA artist Mark Bradford and the World Premiere of “Homecoming” with music composed and performed live by Rufus Wainwright.
