NEWS: Carla Perlo featured in the Washington Post!

Dear Dance Place family,

We are delighted to share with you this wonderful article profiling Founding Director Carla Perlo by Sarah Kaufman, which was published in The Washington Post this weekend. It is so meaningful to read Sarah’s words describing Carla’s lasting impact on the field of dance, youth education and community.
Sarah writes of Carla:
“As for that miracle-working, essential Perlo touch, which created the area’s busiest dance series and laid a key foundation for a nationwide dance network — where will that go?…Presenters, community groups and arts hubs seeking guidance ought to line up at her door, for Carla Perlo has made an art of knowing when to lead, and when to get out of the way.”
