RUBBERBAND Dance Company

Grades 7-12

Join us for this special performance designed for student audiences. Artistic Director and founder Victor Quijada was born to Mexican parents and raised in Los Angeles, thriving in the b-boying circles and hip-hop clubs. Quijada founded RUBBERBAND in 2002, after working in New York and Montreal in classical ballet, winning praise for combining the choreographic principals of ballet with the raw ideology of urban dance. The company’s creations are imbued with a strong theatricality, the energy of improvisation, and the codes of cinematic language. They are sculpted by an incomparable precision of gesture. RUBBERBAND Dance Company has redefined the codes of break, classical ballet, and dance theatre.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden with our Art Talks program!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.
