Dance Place NEXTgeneration Programs

Dance Place provides creative arts education programs, school assemblies, family friendly performances and dance classes in local schools. We reach out to our immediate community, improving the quality of life in Brookland, and to the greater metropolitan area by guiding children in becoming responsible teens and adults. Our NEXTgeneration programs focus on creative education on-site at Dance Place and throughout the city in schools and community-based organizations, providing free and discounted residencies, performances and classes.
