Fairplex Snapshot: BuildABeast Experience 2017

While we may be known for the LA County Fair, car shows, drag races and craft fairs, we’ve also hosted our fair share of the performing arts!

The BuildABeast Experience is back at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel & Conference Center for a full week of dancing. Founded by celebrity choreographer Will “WilldaBeast” Adams, BuildABeast invites dancers of all ages to spend a week learning from the pros and ultimately audition to join the immaBEAST dance crew.

It’s non-stop dancing and an incredible opportunity to learn from some of the best of the best. We love seeing so much talent gathered on our campus!
