The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities will be hosting 50 dance performances at 14 venues around the District from August 28-30 for the 6th Annual Dance DC Festival. Through this yearly festival, the Commission exposes District residents to a wide array of folk and traditional music and dance from around the world. Some genres include hip-hop, salsa, swing, tango and many more. Performances and interactive workshops will be free to the public over this three-day event.
The performances will take place at venues such as The National Zoo, Atlas Performing Arts Theatre, Dance Place, Dance Institute of Washington, the National Museum of the American Indian, Columbus Circle, Bohemian Caverns, Anacostia Art Gallery & Boutique, John F. Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Ebenezer's Coffee House, Heritage Center at Navy Memorial, Ft. Dupont Park and Honfleur Gallery. Last year Dance Festival DC took place in ten venues. This year more venues were added to the program to expose the city, not only to our great performers, but also the many arts venues in the District.
