Choreographer Dana Tai Soon Burgess, members of the Washington dance community, and dance supporters new and seasoned were in attendance at the historic Arts Club of Washington, former home of President James Monroe.
DTSBDC dancers performed excerpts in the intimate gallery space, and offered a preview for their upcoming Kennedy Center performance on November 30.
