Entity Contemporary Dance was founded in 2009 by choreographers Will Johnston, Marissa Osato, and Elm Pizarro with the intent to forge connections between the Southern California hip hop and contemporary dance communities. Based in Los Angeles and directed by Will Johnston and Marissa Osato, Entity Contemporary Dance is a professional contemporary dance company that interweaves modern, jazz, and hip hop dance techniques to present dynamic repertory that explores the nuances of human emotionality and connectivity. Fostering communal collaboration and emphasizing a cross-genre dance education, Entity Contemporary Dance’s mission is to bridge the gaps between commercial and concert dance in Los Angeles.

Known as Seiryu-en or “Garden of the Clear Stream,” the garden is a Little Tokyo hidden gem and one of the best-kept secrets for intimate, unique performances and events. The garden features a stream, blooming trees, foliage, and the sounds of cascading water.
We welcome you to our newest community space, the Toshizo Watanabe Culinary Cultural Center, which will educate and nurture an appreciation of culinary arts from and inspired by Japan.
