Dance Place Brookland NE Washington DC
Dance Place Family Day 2012

Our good buddy Amanda over at Dance Place sent us a message about an exciting annual neighborhood event, the Brookland Arts and Family Day! Check it out:

Spanning the whole of 8th St NE, Dance Place is coordinating a slew of dance, art, and music activities that are all completely free and open to the public. Join us for free samples of our year-long kids and adult dance classes, including modern, African, salsa, hip hop, ballet, jazz and many other styles. Or stop by to take part in one of our arts & crafts workshops and demonstrations. There will be music, dance, and fun for all ages and ability levels.
Events will take place at the Monroe Street Market all the way down to the Artspace Lofts on 8th St NE and will last from 9:30am through the rest of the day.
