Put some spring in your step and join us for a night of music and movement! Accompanied by Chris Brubeck’s Triple Play, New York–based Elisa Monte Dance Company will perform throughout the Gallery’s East Building alongside dancers from DC’s own Joy of Motion. Pop-up talks by museum staff will explore how a little rhythm can help you see art in new ways.
