Leap into Spring

It’s been almost 40 years since Dallas Black Dance Theatre was founded. Since 1976, Ann Williams has grown a small, community-driven organization into a professional dance company recognized all over the country for its diversity — cultural, artistic and audience. In fact, DBDT was in such high demand it needed a second company to better serve its community. This year marks the 15th anniversary of DBDT II, a volunteer, semi-pro company featuring students of Dallas Black Dance Academy, DBDT’s training school. Make that promising, passionate students from around the country who want a life in dance. This weekend, DBDT II welcomes the new energy and the opportunities of the season, harnessing it into bold, modern choreography for Spring Fiesta! at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Dallas City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora St. Performances will guest feature past DBDT II members and Dallas Black Dance Academy’s Allegro Performing Ensemble, as well as the premiere of Nicholas Villeneuve’s “The Art of Waiting.” Tickets are $26.50. Call 214-880-0202 or visit attpac.org. For more information on Dallas Black Dance Theatre, visit dbdt.com.
