What else do we do on tour when we’re not performing, rehearsing and doing workshops? We sightsee!

Our visit in #WashingtonDC has included three shows at Dance Place (and a takeover of their Instagram account last week!), a workshop with CityDance students, guest talks, lots of rehearsing, and discovering some of Washington's iconic landmarks.

We are heading back to Canada for three shows at MT Space as part of IMPACT21 festival in Kitchener-Waterloo later this week!
We are performing Trace in back-to-back shows at Dance Place in Washington, DC tonight and tomorrow. If you're in the area, come and check us out!

We were stoked to lead a workshop last night at CityDance in Maryland, USA. Over 40 diverse youth attended our workshop as part of their dance training.

This is one of several workshops, master classes, community classes, and guest lectures that we offer on tour.

Yes, on top of all of the performing and touring, we always make room to develop the next generation of dance artists and innovators.

Thank you CityDance and Dance Place for making this happen!

Welcome.

Be welcome.

And if you are going to be, then be curious about that, be suspicious of that, be respectful of that, be open to that. Do you know this neighborhood? Do you live here? Are you a guest? Who are you? And how can you be welcome in ways that allow ample space for others’ welcomeness. And while you are welcome (because you are), are you blocking the sight lines of those who are here, Black and q***r? If so, can you move?

On Saturday, October 30th at 12pm, you can meet us on 6th Street, between K & L Street NE (Near Old CIty Market and Oven) for the start of our Let ‘im Move You: INTERVENTION performance. On that day, you can use the link found in Dance Place's bio to locate us if you arrive later. Performances will run from about 12 - 1:15pm on Saturday. We will travel together a distance of about 1 mile from start to finish. There are no stairs on this route, but you will need to cross streets. Please stay hydrated and bring umbrellas, love, and a bit of fairy dust if you have some. Otherwise we will have extra.will have extra.

General information

DC Wheel Productions, Inc./Dance Place was founded in 1978 as a touring educational and Performing Arts Company, which toured the public schools in the Greater DC Metropolitan area. From 1980-1985 the organization developed and operated a cultural community center called Dance Place in a rented facility located at 2424 18th Street NW, DC in the Adams Morgan neighborhood. In 1986, the organization was forced out of its Adams Morgan location due to gentrification and quadrupled rents. In order to secure the organization’s future, DC Wheel purchased and renovated its permanent home located at 3225 8th Street, NE in the Brookland neighborhood. With ownership of its own building, DC Wheel increased development of artistic and educational programs drawing many citizens and new business into its Brookland neighborhood. The heart of the organization has resided in linking Arts, Education and Community in a rich, diverse atmosphere of nurturing support. In 2002, DC Wheel expanded its campus to include three rented facilities located adjacent to its main space in the Brookland Studios to serve as an additional office space, a teaching studio and a creative education center (CEC). A wide variety of programs have been generated throughout Dance Place’s twenty-five year history – feeding the development of a vital community center while simultaneously growing a reputation as a national and international presenter of high acclaim. Dance Place has served as a vital catalyst in parenting, partnering and supporting the growth of individuals, families, schools, organizations and business in the DC area. Also, Dance Place has played a significant role in the creation of a model program for underserved youth and in the development of the DC dance community. Dance Place has enhanced the reach of its national presence while strengthening its connections to DC and its immediate neighborhood. Dance Place has become a strong community arts center and an important thread in the city’s cultural fabric, making Washington, DC a safer and more vibrant city in which to live.
