Washington-based choreographer Eric Hampton’s dance program, “Senseless Acts of Beauty,” takes a bumper-sticker phrase and makes it move. Hampton’s fifth annual benefit for the Whitman-Walker Clinic includes five works that set modern and ballet techniques to classical music. The Hampton Dance Company will also premiere two works—Hindemith: Two for Two and Unravel—at 7:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater. $35 ($75 to attend the post-performance reception).
