To celebrate the opening days of The Phillips Collection’s fall exhibition Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint and The Washington Ballet’s season opener, The Great Gatsby, the two institutions partnered up in Dupont Circle for a unique weekend dance event featuring Dancers from The Washington Ballet, The Washington School of Ballet, and friends, family, and community dancers, dancing to the music of:

  • “Happy Feet”–Milton Ager and Jack Yellen (Dance adapted from The Washington Ballet’s The Great Gatsby)
  • (Disco Remix): “Le Freak”–Chic, “Shout”–Michael Jackson, “The Last Dance”–Donna Summer
  • “Working Day and Night”–Michael Jackson
  • “Charleston”–James P. Johnson and Cecil Mack (Dance adapted from The Washington Ballet’s The Great Gatsby)
  • “The Can-Can”

Franz was around to capture the magic, but if you missed it, don’t miss Phillips After 5 tomorrow night which will feature another Washington Ballet/Phillips collaboration.
