The Metro DC Dance Awards is a spectacular event celebrating the excellence of Metropolitan DC, Maryland, and Virginia's dance community. It showcases the diversity of DC's finest with performances ranging from tango to tap to modern dance, and gives distinction to artists in thirteen categories - including Outstanding Youth Performance, Emerging Choreographer, and Outstanding Overall Production in Concert Dance.
