Every year the Washington City Paper asks the city: Who’s the best? And DC has spoken-
SOKA TRIBE!!!!! is officially THE BEST DANCE CLASS IN DC!
The City Paper staff stopped working in our downtown office and shifted to remote operations in mid-March. In the intervening months, we’ve discussed what to do about Best of D.C., a mammoth operation that requires the participation of everyone on staff and many freelancers as well. At one point we discussed only releasing the results of the Readers’ Picks, which had been voted on and tabulated between early February and early March. During one particularly dark and exhausted moment, we thought about scrapping the issue entirely and trying again in a post-pandemic world. But as we continued to report on the news of D.C., we also saw the resilient people of D.C. begin to reinvent their work and their worlds in ways that made us feel hopeful or excited, at least for a moment.
