DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Presents a FREE Summer Performance Series

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities is pleased to announce Showtime, a performance series through the summer of 2014, featuring a stellar line-up of local artists. Events will take place at the St. Elizabeths Gateway Pavilion, located at 2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE. All are FREE and open to the public.

On June 27 from 6-8 pm, National Hand Dance Association takes the stage by storm. DC Hand Dance, also known as “Hand Dance,” is a contemporary, swing-style, partner dance with roots in Lindy and Swing. It has over a 50-year history as a folk and traditional art form, which is indigenous to the Washington, DC area. Hand Dance is the “Official Dance of the Nation’s Capital.”
