The Petworth Dance Project is one of the best gems in the Petworth cultural crown, and the last performance for this summer is this Saturday, September 12th. (Read my first article about the Dance Project and what it means to live in a neighborhood.)
This wonderful event has drawn a small but dedicated crowd that grows each performance. It would be great to give them a big send-off for the last show of the season. So bring a picnic meal and some drinks and enjoy a great experience.
Come join your neighbors on the lawn at Petworth Park (8th & Taylor St NW) at 6:30pm and enjoy three modern dance companies perform for you. Best of all, it's free.
Come out on Saturday at 6:30pm to enjoy:
ACW Dances is an emerging modern dance company based in Arlington, VA. Our mission is to engage with the metro-DC community through performance, workshops, and collaborative projects. Led by artistic director Abigail Wallace, ACW Dances creates choreography that is highly athletic and daring, revealing human interactions in space and time.
