DANCE PLACE MOVES OUT! 
September 2013-February 2014 

After 27 years of being the “hub of dance” for Brookland, Dance Place is ready for an expansion and a major renovation.  While under construction from August 2013-February 2014, we will present performances in a variety of theaters and host daily classes at two locations on 8th St NE. 

We’re creating a bright future with the Moving Forward Capital Campaign, which includes:

  • ,000,000 for the renovation of our facility, including expanded and redesigned lobby and office spaces, a technically enhanced theater with new comfy theater chairs, expanded dressing rooms, and a new third studio
  • 00,000 for a Program Enhancement Fund to support free community programming such as our annual Brookland Family Day and adventurous dance from across the U.S. through commissioning and residency programs
  • 00,000 for a Cash and Building Reserve to secure Dance Place’s financial position

To date, .63 million has been raised towards the million goal.
