Celebrate Black History Month: DCDC

THIS FEBRUARY WE ARE HONORING BLACK HISTORY MONTH BY INTRODUCING YOU TO PEOPLE MAKING A DIFFERENCE HERE IN THE MIAMI VALLEY.
    THIS WEEK AMBER WATSON  INTRODUCES YOU THE DAYTON CONTEMPORARY DANCE COMPANY AND HOW THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MOVE AUDIENCES NOW FOR SEVERAL DECADES.
THE DAYTON CONTEMPORARY DANCE COMPANY HAS BEEN CAPTIVATING AUDIENCES FOR 46 YEARS NOW.
    A VISION CREATED BY THE LATE JERALDYNE BLUNDEN.

"There weren't a lot of places for african american dancers to dance when she was growing up so that became teachers are choreographers are started dance schools."


    ARTISTIC DIRECTOR DEBBIE BLUNDEN DIGS CONTINUES HER MOTHER'S LEGACY TO SHARE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN EXPERIENCE THROUGH DANCE -- TAKING THE COMPANY UNDER HER WING RAISING IT TO NEW LEVELS.


" we have the largest repertory of works in our vaults..  we never stray away from our mission to support what our culture is and what we give to the stage."


    DANCERS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY COME TO DAYTON OHIO TO TRAIN WITH SOME OF THE BEST CHOREOGRAPHERS IN THE WORLD.
    NABACHWA SSENSALO MOVED FROM LA 15 YEARS AGO TO BE APART OF DCDC.
 "there is a sense that we're all working together to make something happened and that doesn't always happen with other dance companies. It can be a lot of competition.

 "But here it's not about competition it's about art and it's about sharing something of yourself.
 We have the ability to reach across the footlights and touch you.
"We add a human elements that allows our audience in on the stage with us. 21:48:11

    IT'S NOT JUST THE AUDIENCE THAT WALKS AWAY CHANGED.
    DORSE BROWN HAS DANCED WITH THE COMPANY 4 YEARS NOW.
    THE LITTLE ROCK NATIVE SAYS THE GUIDANCE OF DEBBIE BLUNDEN DIGS -- SHAPED HIM INTO THE MAN HE IS TODAY.

We don't just learn steps. I've grown so much as a person as a man as an individual and as a black man.

"I probably wouldn't be as far as i am along now as far as maturity as far as discipline furthering my education, so i am forever grateful."

    THE COMMUNITY GETS THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL.
    WITNESSING WORLD CLASS DANCERS GRACE THE STAGE
    CELEBRATING THE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF THE GEM CITY.
   
       YOU CAN CATCH THE NEXT DCDC PERFORMANCE AT THE KROC CENTER ON MARCH 14TH.
