Event description
Support cultural diplomacy at this event supporting Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company and their upcoming tour to Indonesia.

About this Event

The Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company has been a staple of the Washington, DC region's dance scene for 27 years, presenting original choreography to critical acclaim and having recently made history when it was named the Smithsonian's first-ever resident dance company at the National Portrait Gallery in 2016. It has also been a United States State Department cultural envoy for over two decades, an honor bestowed not long after artistic artistic director Dana Tai Soon Burgess founded the company in 1992.

In this capacity, the Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company (DTSBDC) has toured to over thirty countries across five continents; from Egypt to Mongolia...Pakistan to Peru. Now DC's premiere modern dance company and "a national dance treasure" will tour to Indonesia beginning late October of this year. However, unlike with previous tours, more of the costs for such international 'dance diplomacy' will fall on the dance company itself, as the State Department's budget for cultural and artistic exchange has been reconfigured in recent years.

The Diplomats of Dance Society will be hosting a fundraiser planned for October 17th and we are thrilled to do so at Eaton DC, a unique hotel, restaurant, entertainment and meeting space that celebrates storytelling, cultural sharing and innovation - all qualities of DTSBDC's unique dance work.
