National Dance Day

Sat Sep 21, 6pm
Presented by: The Kennedy Center
Venue: REACH Plaza Stage
Free with RSVP

Gather on the REACH’s outdoor grounds for National Dance Day, where participants learn about the history of dance in D.C. through an interactive “dance lecture demonstration” created by writer and journalist Lisa Traiger. The hour features stories and interactive dance elements representing pillars of D.C. dance history, including The Washington Ballet, Knock on Wood Tap Studio, Jones Haywood Dance School, Dance Place, and the legacy of Pola Nirenska, among others. The show will culminate by learning the Kennedy Center’s own “line dance,” created specifically to tell the story of its history and community. Led by local art maker and former Local Dance Commissioning Project Awardee Sarah Beth Oppenheim and her company Heart Stück Bernie, visitors of all ages and abilities are invited to experience this event together: meet a neighbor, make a new friend, and share space and time through movement.
