In Modern Moves

A showcase of the 55-year journey of Dayton Contemporary Dance Company

IN MODERN MOVES showcases DCDC’s remarkable 55-year journey. Black (aka American) history month features two works by Talley Beatty bridging Reconstruction to the culmination of the Great Migration. Former Artistic Director, Kevin Ward’s “And Each Day,” created for DCDC’s 50th anniversary, explores the power of “we the people.” A season highlight will be the DCDC premiere of “Esplanade” by legendary choreographer Paul Taylor performed to live music by the Springfield Symphony under the direction of Peter Stafford Wilson. “Esplanade” has been called “a masterpiece of physical joy” and will be the first time this work will be performed by a majority African American dance company.
