Renowned “dance maker” Dana Tai Soon Burgess, along with his internationally recognized dance company, made history this month as the first choreographer-in-residence at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. A private preview of Burgess’s latest work “Homage,” inspired by the NPG’s exhibition “Dancing the Dream,” was held on Nov. 6 following a private reception at Pepco’s Edison Gallery with NPG Director Kim Sajet and Curator Amy Henderson, as well as honored guests and supporters. The work later premiered for the public and will be part of the dance company’s evening-length shows at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater on Feb. 7 and 8.
