Music “Mr. Telephone Man” by New Edition

Remember the olden days using a pay phone? Take a dip trip to recall the ways in which we used to communicate. Remember how you spoke to a love connection or bestie over the telephone.

SylviDances was created in 2017. SylviDances was created by DC metro area dancers/choreographers/educators Sylvana Christopher and Maggie Lockhart with the mission to bring people and artists together through fresh, thoughtful, dance and music. SylviDances has presented work at Dance Place, Baltimore Theater Project, Jack Guidone Theater, Gallaudet University, Move Me Festival and Howard County Community College. Dance Metro DC calls the dynamic between the pair “riveting” and “successful in presenting a narrative that makes you think.” Christopher and Lockhart recently partnered with Dance Place to curate their passion project 5 by 5- a stripped down, up close sharing of work by 5 DC area choreographers.
