Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company recently made history as the first-ever Smithsonian resident dance company at the National Portrait Gallery. Washington's main modern dance organization, they have a unique movement aesthetic that incorporates multiple artistic disciplines in their shows and work. Their all-original modern dance choreographies tell stories that cross the barriers of time and culture. Dana Tai Soon Burgess's internationally renowned choreography is empathetic to our universal human condition. He has been called the "poet laureate of Washington dance" and described as a "national dance treasure" by the Washington Post's Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Sarah Kaufman.
