This month at HOME

May is the month for musing, muses and music here in the Dance Exchange studios. We have three stellar performative events planned for our HOME series. Today, Kelly Bond & Melissa Krodman and the group Tia Nina will be sharing their works at the i.v. Two for One works-in-progress showing. Then, SongRise, DC’s all women social media a capella group will fill the studios with their inspiring songs and yummy treats. You’ll also get a chance to see Dance Exchange’s Youth Exchange and Teen Exchange, along with other local youth groups share what they’ve been working on all year at our last event of the month, Youth Arts Night.

Interested in being a part of our series next year? We’re turning the space over to you this time. It could be an installation or it could be a panel discussion. Or a craft night, or a fashion show, or a dimly-lit speakeasy. Dream it up and tell us about it. Must be open to the public and up and running for one night only. Events will take place on a Thursday evening. We’ll pick the three submissions that seem most compelling, that fill a void in the current landscape of happenings in DC, and that we can help facilitate by providing a space of 47 feet by 45 feet. All events will take place in the Rosen Performance Lab at the Dance Exchange. Submit your idea by May 31, 2012 to Ellen Chenoweth at, including this information:
