The Dance Institute of Washington is honored and very pleased to inform all of its students, families and constituents that Ms. Rebbie Jackson will be headlining a special concert at the Duke Ellington Theatre on Friday, February 25, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. Rebbie Jackson is an American singer, best known as the oldest child of the successful Jackson family and sister of pop icons Michael and Janet. As a singer, Rebbie is most famous for the 1984 hit, “Centipede”.
