Announcing Mars Arts DC: Virtual—Dance in DC

An online extension of our Mars Arts D.C. community engagement program, Mars Arts DC: Virtual showcases the meeting of arts and business in D.C., in original, high-quality video productions. Following our inaugural Mars Arts DC: Virtual series, Rhythm & Motion, our second series in Fall 2020 is Dance in DC—six original films, shot by award-winning D.C.-based director Francisco Campos-Lopez, each featuring a local dancer performing onsite at a local business. The artists and proprietors also discuss their mutual connections and the D.C. community.
