Kwanzaa is a Winter Holiday celebration that draws on the agricultural ceremonies of Africa. Being that we are in America, and not Africa, The Dance Institute of Washington has adapted to those principles which honor our ancestors to our struggles and our creativity.
See the Dance Institute of Washington’s The Spirit of Kwanzaa on Dec. 20, 6 p.m.; and Dec. 21, 7 p.m. The 2019 production will feature DIW’s Pre-Professional students, guest performers and guest choreographers. $32.50. THEARC, 1801 Mississippi Ave. SE. bbardc.org.
