DC Dance Collective is on a mission: to open the world of dance to everyone. And it takes that seriously—low-income dancers are encouraged to volunteer at the front desk in exchange for class credits. This communal spirit of creative exercise and collaboration realizes the dream of founder Nancy Newell, whose impressive 49-year dance career includes curating two Smithsonian series based on tap.
Dance Studio Life rightly describes DCDC as "an anomaly among studios in its region for both its collective approach and its vast offerings." In the lobby, which "feels more like a living room," the friendly instructors welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to pick from an eclectic assortment of dance styles, ranging from classics such as tap, ballet, and jazz to diverse styles such as hula, salsa, flamenco, belly dance, and Sri Lankan dance. Hip-hop and break-dancing classes help dancers find their inner funk without GPS, and Zumba fitness dance classes get everyone sweating to global party beats with Latin-inspired moves.
Perfect Image Salon, an Aveda Concept salon, is concerned with taking that extra step to ensure that patrons feel pampered and are able to decompress from the outside world. That's why guests sip cups of complimentary tea, infused with peppermint and licorice root, as they wait for a waxing service or settle in for a shampoo, conditioning, and stress-relieving Blue Oil neck massage. The salon's custom facials, which utilize Aveda's plant-based products, always begin with a footbath, and their makeup products are made from ingredients such as Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, and the tears of ripe berries with pure hearts.
To make each experience truly relaxing, Perfect Image Salon lets guests pick a complimentary service to enjoy during their visits: a soothing neck and shoulder massage, a hand massage, an aromatic steam towel during their shampoo, or a makeup touch-up at the end of the reservation
