Mr. (Kevin) Smith Goes to Washington, DCIFF Wrap-Up

Tomorrow, Tuesday March 15, filmmaker Kevin Smith will be presenting his new film Red State at the Warner Theater. Smith, famous for comedic films like Clerks and Chasing Amy as well as being the quiet half of Jay and Silent Bob, departs from his usual humorous territory to dabble in horror. Red State centers around characters inspired by Westboro Baptist Church and its founder, Fred Phelps. Westboro Baptist has achieved national infamy for its controversial protests at the funerals of U.S. servicemen.

CityDance DREAM Program Performs On Big Stage

CityDance DREAM Program Performs On Big Stage

This past Tuesday, March 8, 144 students from the District and Prince George’s County, Maryland who participate in the D.C. CityDance DREAM after-school outreach program performed a six-minute dance routine at halftime of the Washington Wizards game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

CityDance, which was founded in 1996, is a professional dance company and a conservatory, training school that offers free community dance and literacy programs to children throughout the D.C. area, taught by CityDance Ensemble members.  Tuesday evening marked the sixth year that the DREAM program students have performed at the Verizon Center.

The after-school program combines dance lessons with reading and writing help, something that DREAM teacher Charonne Butler believes is incredibly beneficial to the students.
