by Frances Steiner - Oct 23, 2015

VelocityDC Dance Festival is true to its name.  It showcases over 20 DC-based dance companies and individual artists over four days.  Blink and you will miss it.  This festival, started in 2009, is presented in partnership with Dance Metro DC, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Shakespeare Theatre Company, and Washington Performing Arts, and is aimed at showcasing the diversity and vitality of the DC dance scene.  Each ticket to the performance is only $18, reducing the barrier to entry for a new dance patron.  Friday's show featured 10 individual pieces and a site-specific dance before the main performance, plus a free dance class to finish off the night.  Juggling 11 separate pieces in one evening, VelocityDC managed to drop a few balls.

The family is comprised of two charming spinster aunts who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously 'acceptable' roomers; their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and another brother, Mortimer, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry. The play is one of the most popularly performed American comedies of the past 75 years.
