    03.19.12: EDC PERFORMS IN DC'S DANCE SAMPLER

    This March Equinox Dance Company took a trip to our nation's capital to perform in Jane Franklin Dance's Dance Sampler at the Woolley Mammoth Theatre. Dance Sampler celebrated the Washington, D.C., dance community with a showcase of works by six choreographers/companies. EDC performed Constant Routine choreographed by Sandra Atkinson. The 2-part dance explored quick, mechanically repeated routine movement paired with a more fluid movement that expressed a sense of slowing down to enjoy life a bit more.
