Williams.  Her training has continued with the following: AVC 1987-1990 Kathy Bingham, Dupree Michael Rooney, Tremaine Doug Caldwell & Jackie Sleight, Debbie Reynold’s Studio Alex Magro & Thommie Retter.

Holly’s history with AV Dance Studio ’81 started at age 6 with classes taught by Lidia Landon Michael, her first teacher.  She studied with Lidia for many years and received great training.  When she was 13 or 14 she started to assist Lidia’s classes and also Barbara Coates’ classes.  Now, 25 years later Holly has come full circle and she’s back at AV Dance Studio ’81.  She’s even an assistant for Lidia and Barbara again.

Los Angeles On-Location Filming Rose 15% in 2010, Boosted by Tax Credits

Los Angeles On-Location Filming Rose 15% in 2010, Boosted by Tax Credits

On-location filming rose almost 15 percent in Los Angeles last year, helped by $100 million in state tax credits and an advertising recovery.

Movie production increased 8.1 percent and television production gained 12 percent in 2010,FilmL.A., a non-profit group that tracks and coordinates film permits, said today in an e-mailed statement.

California competes for film production with states including New York and Louisiana that also offer tax incentives. The California Film Commission used the entire $100 million allocated for credits less than three months into the fiscal year that began in July 2010, the agency said at the time. The credits accounted for a 28 percent increase in movie filming in the fourth quarter, FilmL.A. said.

The production of commercials rose 28 percent, the most of any category. The increase is the result of a rebound in advertising spending and greater demand for video content for marketing,Matt Miller, president of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, said in the statement.
