About the Dallas Black Dance Theater:
Founded in 1976 by Ann Williams, the mission of Dallas Black Dance Theatre is to create and produce contemporary modern dance at its highest level of artistic excellence through performances and educational programs that bridge cultures and reach diverse communities. With an ever-expanding national and global audience, the company employs a diverse, multi-ethnic troupe of dancers performing for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. That diversity has propelled the company to prominence as the only full-time professional dance company in Dallas. Dallas Black Dance Theatre celebrates its 30th season as the oldest, continuously operating professional dance company in Dallas. The ensemble, a contemporary modern dance company, consists of 14 professional dancers performing a mixed repertory of modern, jazz, ethnic and spiritual works by nationally and internationally known choreographers such as Alvin Ailey. The company’s dancers have studied, trained and performed with some of the pre-eminent performers and teachers in the American dance world.
