Our last Dance Downtown of 2013 took place at Grand Park. We learned sizzling Samba and danced the night away to Brazilian tunes!
The Music Center and Grand Park introduced LA to the wonders of "Exxopolis," a luminarium that debuted in Grand Park on September 7, 2013. The LA presentation of this inflatable walk-in sculpture, designed by world-renowned Architects of Air, gave Grand Park visitors an unprecedented sensory experience of color, light and sound. Also an LA first, Exxopolis featured short-unexpected performances that saluted LA's many diverse communities and cultural traditions. The free presentation of Exxopolis marks the opening of the 11th season of The Music Center's World City series, free family-friendly programming that celebrates artistic traditions from around the globe.
