So many contribute to this production — not the least of which Lula’s attentive and responsive audience — but one name merits mention. That’s Tamica Washington-Miller, the company’s associate director, who oversaw the Kwanzaa show preparation (the main event is “Harambe Suite,” but additional repertory added) while her mother led the professional troupe on a 12-city tour of Russia (they toured 18 Russian cities in 2010). Everyone knows that Tamica Washington-Miller is one of the best dancers in Los Angeles. All hail Tamica.
The company starts its spring tour soon, stopping in 14 cities in the Mid-Atlantic region. In California, LWDT performs in Temecula in a few weeks, Jan. 18-19, 2013.
