Dance Place Wins Mayor’s Arts Award

Dear friends,

I write to you to share the thrilling news that Dance Place won the 2017 Mayor’s Arts Award for Excellence in Performing Arts last night at the Lincoln Theater! We are grateful to our Mayor and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities for organizing and bestowing these annual awards, which highlights the fantastic work of our peers within the arts, humanities and creative sector.

I can’t think of a more perfectly timed award to celebrate Carla and Deborah’s phenomenal tenure as the leaders of Dance Place. As the entire community applauded our two fabulous leaders, I was so proud to be a part of Dance Place’s leadership team and share in this incredible honor.

This award is absolutely the result of the incredible Dance Place family of artists, audiences, students, families and teachers whose work inspires everything we do. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ALL!

With love and appreciation,
