Here is great local event taking place this Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23 at 8pm. From the event page:

Going into its 16th year, Dance Place hosts five emerging hip-hop dance artists as part of Hi-ARTS’s annual DC Hip-Hop Theater Festival. Artists Charise Pinkston, Christopher Law, Briana Stuart, Makeda Abraham and AwE connect words with dance through this year’s theme: “Word is Bond.”

Founded as the Hip-Hop Theater Festival in 2000, the HiARTS mission is to support hip-hop as a vibrant urban art and culture movement. HiARTS invigorates the arts and culture field by nurturing the creation of innovative work within the hip-hop aesthetic; presenting and touring artists whose work addresses the socio-political issues relevant to the hip-hop generation; and serving young, urban communities through outreach and education.

Get your tickets here. Dance Place is located at 3225 8th Street NE.
