Last weekend the Clarice Smith Performing Arts center staged the 35th Choreographers’ Showcase. At the start of each year, the program provides glimpses of new and established dancers and choreographers in the D.C. area. The six individual performances this weekend were varied in their styles, aesthetics and messages yet they all came together wonderfully. Light designer and UMD alumni Jane Chan came in from New York to provide the superb ambiance for the performances. This year the program was a partnership between the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission and the Clarice.
