our mission:

LASDP strives to preserve, promote, perform, and teach the vernacular jazz dances from the 1800's to the present. Filling in the historical gaps through Swing dance history.

our vision:

LASDP is a diverse and inclusive 501(c)3 organization; our members reflect a wide range of ages and ethnicities. We have been able to reach younger and older generations by performing in schools, senior citizen centers, performing art centers and festivals. In the future we will continue to perform, give in-person workshops, and online classes that combine vernacular jazz dance history with authentic dance styles. 


Your donations will allow us to dance, entertain, teach, and spread the joy and love of dance! This funding will allow us to support our artistic director and choreographer, Chester A. Whitmore, obtain rehearsal space, costumes, video equipment, and document the origins of vernacular jazz dance. You can also support us by “liking” us on Facebook and following us on Instagram. 

Please partner with us today in supporting our cause.

We also accept

Venmo and

Zelle donations.
