HISTORY & Milestones
The data points of our impact: an algorithm with heart.
The combination of stories and data points are like bodies synced in the constellation of a dance. They tell the larger story of Invertigo’s impact on people’s lives, locally and nationally.
Founded in 2007 by Laura Karlin, Invertigo Dance Theatre has created and performed 40+ original choreographic works across Los Angeles and Southern California. Building community with people of all ages and abilities, Invertigo embodies and embeds its anti-racism, anti-oppression, cultural equity, and inclusion policies into all programming, for the company invites people to experience the art of dance and storytelling as a catalyst for deeper joy and human connection. Alongside its professionally staged productions, Invertigo’s long-standing community engagement program – Dancing Through Parkinson’s – utilizes dance as a means to inspire connection and well-being for people with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
