    Please feel free to contact me if you would like your company added or deleted. When I began the Dance Directory in July 1995, I started with our company (LA C& D) mailing list, plus a list from Dance Resource Center and ARTS Inc. of additional organizations and phone numbers here in Southern CA. If I couldn't find a contact # or e-mail, I did not use the listing. The pre-fixes in the Southern CA area are often reassigned. If you find a mistake, please notify me. This is the 10th edition of this page since I created links for all the e-mail and web sites. It seems that enough of us have them to incorporate them into the directory. Let me know if you get a new one, and I will be glad to link it in. This is provided as a free service. Please note that this directory was conceived mainly for dance companies and non-commercial sites, although LA dance agents have been included because I see them as a real service here for the dance community. For other local dance pages that may not fall under this area, please see our Copyright (c) 1995-2017 by Louise Reichlin; all rights reserved. These pages may not be used for financial gain. These pages may not be used for commercial collections or compilations without express permission from the author. (Louise Reichlin, Southern Calfornia Dance and Directory)
