Dancing under Dupont
By Lyn Lifshin
I’m fascinated by the idea of turning the abandoned trolley station under Dupont Circle into galleries [“For D.C. art activists, a buried treasure,” Metro, Jan. 22]. I suggest, as a compatible and important addition, including a new dance studio for ballet, ballroom, salsa, hip-hop, etc.
Recently, to the horror of many, Joy of Motion Dance Center closed its Dupont Circle location. That means there is no dance center in this part of the city. With high rents even in this time of economic difficulties, the possibility of a central space such as these tunnels seems especially exciting.
There is a longstanding group of dance devotees who would be relieved and thrilled to have a new Dupont Circle dance space.
