Luminario Ballet captivates in climate change performance at annual gala
Luminario is a contemporary ballet company also presenting classic modern dance repertory and aerial dance. Their dancers live in LA, but come from everywhere, representing the region's diversity and excitement.
Their choreographers range from classically inspired such as San Francisco Ballet's Michael Smuin and Polish ballet Maestro Stefan Wenta, to edgy contemporary choreographers such as Josie Walsh and Jamal Story.
This year, Luminario held their annual gala at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica, California where it was attended by: Baroness Amber Martinez and Princess Ratu Mada Karen Cantrell; Chevalier Peter L. Eckert; Charles Evans Jr (Producer, "The Aviator", founder of Luminario Ballet); Stephen Nemeth of Rhino Films; John Krasno, former President of Panavision; Sunmin Park of Manga Media Films; and dance notables Debbie Allen and Nigel Lythgoe.
A special ballet and aerial performance on climate change featured dancers suspended in mid-air in a mesmerizing performance about the environment.
