L.A. Hip-Hop Dancers Share Their Common Dream

To get right in the center of the hip-hop dance community, look no further than the streets of Los Angeles. From the corners of North Hollywood to the ocean city views of Long Beach, dancers are performing everywhere if you just know where to look. It’s one of the reasons international students flock to the city of palm trees and Hollywood stars.

Five Japanese dancers are the center of this short documentary titled “L.A. Dreamers.” While they all have a different story and affinity to the hip-hop dance community, they ultimately share a common dream of becoming full time dancers. Director Dani Fortuny captures the vibrant mood of L.A. while showcasing the intricate moves from the performers. Choreographers are one of the most underrated artistic occupations; their dreams and goals require intense energy, hours of practice and constant dedication. Hit play above and watch “L.A. Dreamers.”
