What happens when you add Degas’s dancers to Dupont Circle? Dance in Dupont! On Saturday, the Phillips, The Washington Ballet, and Urban Artistry celebrated the opening day of the Phillips’s fall exhibition Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint and the ballet’s season opener The Great Gatsby with original choreography performed by Washington School of Ballet students and members of the public who learned the dance from videos online. Phillips blogger Brooke Rosenblatt caught some of the performance on tape.
