Dance Institute of Washington celebrates Kwanzaa

Always like writing about local institutions and the arts: the Dance Institute of Washington, which is located at 3400 14th St NW, is having its annual dance celebration for Kwanzaa, the African American heritage and culture celebration, on December 21 and 22 at the Gala Theatre (14th and Park). The event, called The Magic Kente Cloth, will feature DIW's Youth Repertory Ensemble, their students, and another troupe, the Washington Reflections Dance Company.

The events are at 3PM and 7PM and is directed by the founder and artistic director of DIW Fabian Barnes and rehearsal director Ralph Glenmore, a former principal dancer of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Tickets are available online.
