On February 26, Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative and the 11th Street Bridge Park will host District of Dance: A D.C. Rhythm & Blues Celebration inspired by the rhythm & blues history of Washington, D.C. from the 50s, 60s and early 70s. Held at Anacostia High School from 3 pm to 8 pm, this FREE event will feature live performances, hand dance lessons and panel discussions.

“I think the bridge is going to bring a lot of people together who normally don’t cross paths.”

Tendani Mplubusi-El, Ward 8 Artist and Resident
