October 2-3: Velocity DC Dance Festival

If you’ve always wanted to try a dance performance, but not sure what to see and on a budget, your time has come with Velocity DC. On Friday and Saturday, October 2 and 3, for only $15, come sample six of the best dance companies from DC (and beyond) at the beautiful Sidney Harman Hall at 610 F Street NW.

Featured are short pieces from Ron K. Brown and Evidence, The Washington Ballet, CityDance Ensemble, Helanius Wilkins, from Edgeworks, Gesel Mason, Nejla Yatkin, Edwin Aparicio, Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and Willi Dorner. You’ll see modern, African, ballet, hip hop and many forms in between.

Velocity is designed for folks who may be new to dance, beginning with Gesel Mason’s performance of How to Watch a Modern Dance. Stay afterward at the bar to swap impressions, meet some dancers, and finally be able to ask them, up close and in person, how they do it all Night owls, stick around for Velocity DC Late Night! on Saturday, a cabaret-style showcase of movement, music and mayhem featuring dancers, poets and musicians. Street performances before the show will be free and open to the public.

Visit VelocityDC.org for more information. With a deal like this, tickets are bound to go quick–and you can purchase them online.
