Liz Lerman Dance Exchange The Matter of Origins

source: Enoch Chan (

The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange presents the world premiere of The Matter of Origins at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland on Friday, September 10th. Sad that tickets are sold out as I heard that it is an amazing show (and they serve chocolate cake in the second act).

Don’t worry though! Lots of other events going on this weekend including several dance performances at Sidney Harman Hall for the DC Arts on Foot Festival. Excited to see some of the biggest names in DC dance including The Washington Ballet and CityDance Ensemble for FREE. Hope to see you there.

It’s finally the weekend and again so much going on in the world of dance. Who says DC is all about politics? If you just want to chill and watch a movie, Bethesda Row Cinema (not E Street Cinema like I originally thought) is playing Mao’s Last Dancer. Or you can dance in the streets in celebration of Columbia Heights Day. BloomBars in particular has several workshops going on and it will only cost you a $10 suggested donation!

Thai dance at Silom Village BangkokLots going on this weekend.  Hope you all can make it to the Dance DC Festival at Atlas Performing Arts Center.  Free workshops and performances celebrating global movement!  The picture to the left is one I took at Silom Village in Bangkok of traditional Thai dancing.  Maybe they’ll have some of that this weekend?

Also wanted to let you know about DCypher dance auditions tonight from 9pm-11pm at Joy of Motion Friendship Heights.  Click here for my post about their show in July or here for audition details.

Sad to be away from DC again this weekend, but happy to be hanging in LA.  First time to Southern California so if you have any recommendations on places to dance, please send me a note.  Here are some upcoming events in the District including auditions this Saturday in Silver Spring for Contradiction Dance.  As always, feel free to leave a comment with anything I left out.  Keep dancing!

Lots of great events happening this weekend, particulary for National Dance Day this Saturday!  Wanted to point out an event tonight at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria. Karen Reedy Dance will perform at 6pm along the waterfront.  The FREE performance includes kayaking and dance, all inspired by art!  Please tell me about it or send pictures if you go.  Also here’s the routine to learn for the National Dance Day flash mob:
