Glen Echo Park In the News
What's So Special About Glen Echo Park...
“Glen Echo Park fosters creativity and a love of the arts as well as a sense of community. The learning and shared experiences that I have enjoyed at the Park over the years have not only strengthened my understanding of myself but also of the arts as a basic necessity.”
Member, Student, and Volunteer
“We love dancing at Glen Echo Park! The dance community is what brought us together 10 years ago when we first met at a USO dance in the Spanish Ballroom... The beauty of the Ballroom, the wide variety of dance offerings (we especially enjoy Waltz Time), the incredible bands that play at the dances, the lessons offered before each dance – all of this has kept us coming back for more."
