about

PDCLA is a collective dance company based in Los Angeles, CA. We strive to create works that let our dancers not just be a dancer but have a space to share their creative voice within the process of creating dance works and seeing their ideas take shape within the pieces we create. We are not limited to one genre of dance either, we incorporate the technical styles of ballet, modern, and contemporary along with whatever else our dancers might have to offer.  PDCLA is not just a collective of dancers- we thrive when collaborating with musicians or other artists to create enthralling performances for the community.

"kənˈfôrmədē is the pronunciation form of the word conformity, meaning the compliance with standards, rules or laws. Choreographed by Carisa Carroll, the Artistic Director/Choreographer of Palm Dance Collective LA, the dance opens with performers walking, each seeming to have a destination in mind. One man, however, begins to twitch and change course which sets off a chain of events for lead dancer, Jestoni DagDag, who tries to conform, but cannot. Carroll has a strong sense of composition and the movement is tinged with loose athleticism. She uses physical contact to re-route her characters into nonconformity, and straight lines to demonstrate the lure of conformity. There is a beautiful duet with DagDag and Leah Hamel at the close of kənˈfôrmədē which highlights how many are resistance to change. The rest of the talented cast includes Kozue Kasahara, Elise Matthews, Lyla Palmer, Samantha Rose and Nicholas Shopoff."

"The strongest works in Act I were Sticks and Stones by Carisa Carroll..."

"I reviewed Sticks and Stones in an earlier article for SeeDance and was pleased to see that Carisa Carroll had re-worked it. The adversarial relationship between the two dancers, Kaycee Jannino and Elise Matthews, is now well defined and the work has come together."
