The Culver City City Council awarded grants to sixteen performing arts companies to present theatre, dance, and music performances in Culver City throughout 2018.

The Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program, which is part of the City’s Art in Public Places Program, supports non-profit performing arts organizations and provides diverse cultural programming throughout the year. Annually, the City Council reviews recommendations from the Cultural Affairs Commission and allocates funding for the program from the Cultural Trust Fund. Also, Sony Pictures Entertainment generously supports the grant program.

Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre and Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers presented dance performances in February 2018. Below is a list of grantees who will present performances for the remainder of the year. Please contact the following performing arts organizations for more specific information about their upcoming performances in Culver City.
