We're not sure what we did to deserve the livestream generosity the dance world is giving us these days, but this weekend, it's getting even better.

L.A. Dance Project, Benjamin Milliepied's trendsetting contemporary troupe, has been in residence at The Chinati Foundation for the past few days. This weekend, they're showing us what they've come up with—for three days straight.

The performances will be inspired by the museum's permanent collection, predominantly featuring the work of founder Donald Judd, who designed the costumes and sets for Trisha Brown's 1987 Newark.

LADP is venturing into new territory left and right, so it's no surprise that they're getting in on the site-specific-museum-work trend. (Or the livestream trend, for that matter). They're setting plenty of trends themselves, including creating a series of workout videos and an online dance platform.

Catch them in action on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 2pm CT/3pm EST. Tune in on Periscope.

    Many have turned to social media to share their last curtain calls, thoughts on what it feels like to say farewell to performing, and insights into the ways that dancing has made them who they are. After years of dedicating your life to the studio and stage, the decision to stop dancing is always an emotional one. Each dancer handles it in their own way—whether that means cheekily admitting to having an existential crisis, or simply leaving with no regrets about what you did for love.

    We will miss these dancers' performances, but can't wait to see what awaits each in their next chapters.

    Choreographic incubator Broadway Dance Lab has recently been rechristened Dance Lab New York. "I found the nomenclature of 'Broadway' was actually a type of glass ceiling to the organization," says choreographer Josh Prince, who founded the nonprofit in 2012.
