Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s 41 st season finale features three world premieres.

16-year veteran of Disney’s Tony award-winning The Lion King Ray Mercer likes to create athletic and daring dance works. Mercer’s highly energized Undeviated Passage is brilliantly choreographed.

Face it. Don’t side step it! Face what’s facing you! is an honest, soul-stirring exploration of how challenges make us victorious by veteran DBDT dancer Claude Alexander III.

Guest artist Dark Circles Contemporary Dance goes full-blown nostalgia in Artistic Director Joshua L. Peugh’s Rattletrap. You will get the feel of Peugh’s childhood growing up in small town USA.

Ulysses Dove’s choreography captures pure athleticism, intensity, and drama at its finest in Vespers. Dove uses six women as vessels of his grandmother’s spirit in a soulful worship. The women of DBDT will captivate the audience with their raw energy and passion in this iconic work that was created in 1986.
