GTJ staff member, Michael Lipin, pulled off quite the public dance party this past weekend. Hundreds of people gathered at Dance in the Circle on May 13th, to see nine dance troupes perform on a stage in Dupont Circle… and even dance themselves.

Michael Lipin — Dance Party Organizer Extraordinaire

After a wide range of dance styles were featured — from clogging to hiphop — the evening wrapped up with an open hour of dance, including lights, speakers blasting, and massive audience participation.

The crowd gathers

“The Circle almost had the feel of a night club, but with everyone invited – especially the moms, who got some special shout-outs from the MC in honor of Mother’s Day,” Lipin told GTJ.

“Dance in the Circle was a personal dream of mine, given my passion for dance,” he said, “but its success was the result of excellent teamwork, particularly with my fellow-volunteers Daniel Kramer and Alex Emmerman. Daniel had been working with me on the planning of DITC since April 2011, while Alex came on board last December and did an amazing job as DITC graphic designer and webmaster.”

“In producing DITC, we all experienced ups & downs, but we were determined enough to overcome the obstacles. A key to the success of the event was building a broad coalition of supporters in the community, from non-profit groups like Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets and the Dupont Circle Citizens Association, to local businesses such as Attache Property Management and BGR The Burger Joint, and even DC Councilmember Jack Evans,” Lipin added.

According to event organizers, some 500 people turned out for the event during the day. The event had been postponed from its original date on April 21st due to inclement weather, but Sunday’s warm weather attracted many passers-by. The event was such a bit hit, it caught the attention of the Washington Times.
