Living Legends 2010 01.jpg

Contents

[edit] Overview

Living Legends combines dynamic choreography of native American choreographies with the color and vitality of the dances of Polynesian and Latin American dances. Performed by talented descendants of these cultures and woven together by traditional and contemporary music, Living Legends' program is a stunning tribute to the ancient cultures of the Americas and the Pacific. More than a dance troupe, Living Legends shares cultural heritage and the gospel of Jesus Christ. The result is more than just an educational experience, it is spiritual.

Living Legends has performed throughout the United States and in more than 45 foreign countries. Featured on national TV in China, Eastern Europe, and Latin America, it represented the United States at the 1992 World's Fair in Seville, Spain and at the 1991 German-American Volksfest in Berlin. In February 2011, Living Legends celebrated its 40th anniversary.

[edit] Early History

Living Legends Group 5x7.jpg
Living Legends was founded by Janie Thompson in 1970, although at that time, it was called "Lamanite Generation." The group was organized as part of the missionary effort for the Southwest Indian Mission. The early shows included a singing and dancing, with a member of the group bearing testimony to the audience during intermission.

Janielle Hildebrandt Christensen is the current artistic director of Living Legends and has traveled around the world with the group, bringing uplifting family entertainment to millions through live and televised productions. Christensen hopes that through their travels, members of Living Legends will inspire people of all cultures to take pride in their own unique heritage.

The group consists of 38 members, including performers and a skilled technical crew. All members are of Latin American, Native American or Polynesian heritage and are selected after a rigorous audition process.

Living Legends participated in the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics in Salt Lake City in 2002.
