Choreographers' Showcase

This evening of works by new and established choreographers has been inspiring dance audiences and supporting scores of dance makers since 1983. Called a “rite of passage in the DC-area dance community”, the Showcase gives area choreographers the chance to demonstrate their talent on a professional stage. The Showcase features voting for the Audience Choice Award, a special trophy awarded by The Clarice.
