While dancing to the global beats of Meso Creso’s resident DJs, keep an eye out for that trickster Cheshire Cat, let the Red Queen and her minions take your head off, and see if you can keep up with the White Rabbit ‘till dawn. After all, dancing all night is exactly what unbirthdays are for!

    Wonderland is a secret location at the end of the Rabbit Hole, taking place in a brand-new community art and dance space on 14th Street NW in Petworth. A magical transformation of one of Petworth's historic theaters, the location is a 21st century arts space wrapped in 1920's elegance. Created by and for the city's artists and the neighborhood, it will bring dance classes, theatrical productions, and art installations to Upper 14th Street in an extraordinary space. But for one night, it will be your Wonderland...
