Benjamin Millepied's L.A. Dance Project was far and away the most anticipated dance event of the last 12 months. The inaugural program at Walt Disney Concert Hall in September offered at least one ballet for viewers to hate (for most, that would be Merce Cunningham's "Winterbranch"). The choreographer only partly realized his intentions in his own new work. So we dig in for the long haul to gauge the promise and rewards of the "Black Swan" choreographer's collective. Standing ovation, however, for the project's dancers.
