Earlier this summer I went to a Ford Theatre event where they told us journos about all the upcoming events this summer and gave us a tour. I wrote a bit about it because I was impressed with the venue for both the space, and the opportunity it offers creative types wanting to get their work shown (a great space and 90% of profits, cha-ching.)  The schedule had a variety of acts, so I thought there really was something for everyone at the Ford this summer.

Target is sponsoring a dance series at the Ford and  offering $5 student/child tickets for all Dance Events through October.  There is a wide variety of acts and with the prices so cheap and the venue one of LA’s best, it’s a great, affordable summer activity.
