About Invertigo Dance Theatre

Invertigo Dance Theatre was founded by Artistic Director Laura Karlin in 2007, and we are a contempuorary dance company based in Los Angeles.  Invertigo blends highly athletic, virtuosic with theatricality and storytelling.  Invertigo has a strong community engagement thread woven into its programming: our Dancing Through Parkinson’s program provides donation-based classes to people living with degenerative conditions, and the Invert/ED program provides a range of dance education and performance opportunities to students who might not otherwise have access to dance. Throughout all company initiatives, Invertigo is committed to paying fair wages to company members and commissioned artists.
