Washington dance patrons and Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company members gathered at Cyril Brenac's Bistrot Lepic in Georgetown on Apr. 1 for a fundraising wine-tasting honoring the company's history-making residency at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. Burgess is the first-ever choreographer in residence at the museum, where his portrait currently hangs alongside dance pioneers such as Martha Graham and Isadora Duncan, and debuted the piece "Homage," inspired by the "Dancing the Dream" exhibition there in November last year. Burgess is premiering his newest work, performing two shows at the National Portrait Gallery's Kogod Courtyard, on Saturday Apr. 19 at 1:00 and 2:30 PM.
