The festival culminates with a performance by Arlington’s own Bowen McCauley Dance and special performances by BMD’s Kenmore Junior Company and the students in BMD’s Dance for PD program.

BMD is proud to partner with a variety of arts organizations from the Metro DC area to provide an afternoon of exciting performances and activities.Participating arts partners offer performances, demonstrations, and activities for children and adults alike.

Last year, participants traveled with BMD “around the world” and experience live performances and interactive activities in dance, music, theater, and arts and crafts that were perfect for the whole family! Experiences included the fun and excitement of Latin and South America, the exhilarating rhythms of Flamenco and Middle Eastern dances, the magnificent traditions and original art forms of Europe, North America, and the Pacific Islands; and the mysteries of South Asia.
