The REACH, the Kennedy Center’s first ever expansion, is here! And y’all, it’s incredible. Indoor spaces, outdoor spaces, state of the art studios and classroom, multiple pavilions, meeting spaces, lecture halls, an outdoor video wall and so much MORE! If you are a nerd like me, check out all the design features here.
While the REACH opens on September 7, 2019 with a two-week free festival, I was lucky enough to get a tour a month early with some of my favorite DC dance colleagues.
The always fabulous Jane Rabinovitz, Dance Programming Coordinator for the Kennedy Center, walked us through the expansive campus and even allowed a few photos to be snapped. Thanks, Jane!
In true transparency, I was so taken by the spaces that I did not catch the exact names for the areas pictured below. Sorry!
Excited to explore the REACH yourself? Get ready for over 500 free events over 16 days starting September 7, 2019, including a DC Dance Community Roundtable facilitated by yours truly! You can check out the schedule here.
Looking forward to all the opportunities this addition will bring to our dance community!
