DC Dance Collective
Address: 4908 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20016
DC Dance Collective is located approximately four blocks from both the Friendship Heights and Tenlytown Metro stations (both located on the Red Line). When coming from the Friendship Heights station, exit the station via the Jenifer Street exit (it's the exit with no escalators, only elevators). Turn right once you get to the street level. You'll be on Wisconsin Avenue headed south. The streets are (in order) Jenifer, Ingomar, Harrison, Garrison, Fessenden, Ellicott. We are in between Fessenden and Ellicott, right next door to a bright green El Salvadoran resturant. Enter on the lower level. If you reach Ellicott Street (it has a gas station on the corner), you've gone about 100 feet too far.
