From an email:
I’m a local resident and organizer of 2010’s World Cup fan festival and snowball fights in Dupont Circle Park, and I would like to let you know about another event that I am organizing for next month: Dance in the Circle (DITC).
The six-hour dance festival, scheduled for April 21st, will be the first of its kind in Dupont Circle Park, featuring a dance floor, speaker system, lights, DJ booth, and 10 local-area dance companies doing performance and instruction in a variety of styles, all free & open to the public.
Press release after the jump.
We would like to inform you about the next big production coming to Dupont Circle: Dance in the Circle (DITC), an all-ages event that will be free and open to the public.
In the Circle Productions, an affiliate of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, will stage the dance festival in Dupont Circle Park on April 21, 2012.
The six-hour dance festival will feature a variety of performance and instruction segments on a parquet floor near the Circle’s iconic fountain. A team of DJ’s and a sound system will supply the music.
Ten established dance companies in the DC metro area have agreed to participate, including the Bomb Squad Dance Team, Calico Cloggers, Capitol Movement, DanceAntonini, Dance Dimensions, DanceEthos, darlingdance, DCypher Dance (Joy of Motion Dance Center), Furia Flamenca and Urban Artistry.
