In the late ’60s, Jan Van Dyke and John Gamble founded the Georgetown Workshop (GTW) to give local choreographers and dancers a forum for developing and performing their works. GTW disbanded after Van Dyke and Gamble left the area, but reformed as the Dance Project, which in time became Dance Place. In the meantime, Van Dyke and Gamble were reunited as faculty at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and, later, as touring partners. This weekend, Van Dyke and Gamble return to D.C. for performances of Van Dyke’s Woof and Field of Force, as well as Gamble’s new, six-section work, Falls From Grace. A Dance Project reunion follows the perform ance, which begins at 8 p.m. (and repeats Sunday at 4 p.m.) at Dance Place, 3225 8th St. NE. $8-10. (202) 269-1600. (Clara Jeffery)
