Dayton Contemporary Dance Company prepares historic concert - Dayton Daily News

Be prepared for more Black history to be made during Black History Month as Dayton Contemporary Dance Company presents “In Modern Moves” Feb. 17-18 at the Victoria Theatre.

In one of the biggest coups in its 55-year history, DCDC is the first African American dance company to receive Paul Taylor’s 1975 masterpiece “Esplanade” into its repertoire. Taylor’s acclaimed routine features everyday, pedestrian movement — standing, skipping, sliding, falling, running, walking — set to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Called “a masterpiece of physical joy,” the work serves as the concert centerpiece and will be performed to live music by the Springfield Symphony Orchestra under Peter Stafford Wilson’s direction.
