Since 1998, his multimedia works for Salt Farm include Blue Scale, River of Sand, River Rock Sun, Reverberation and Requiem for Darkness. Ledoh has received support from the Margaret Jenkins Dance Laboratory, the Irvine Foundation, the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Zellerbach Family Fund. He has been awarded residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, the Luggage Store Gallery, the Lucas Artists Program at Montalvo and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. He has taught his approach to improvisation at Naropa University, Dancer’s Group Summerfest and to other Bay Area dance companies.
