And That’s Our Story


And That’s Our Story chronicles Dayton Contemporary Dance Company’s contributions to American contemporary dance and captures the story of one woman who against all odds created a successful modern dance company in mid-America 48 years ago. Through the use of dance, spoken word and audience participation, the internationally acclaimed DCDC presents excerpts from its expansive archive of classic modern dance works by diverse choreographers that commemorate history and the storytelling of the human experience. Photo: Andy Snow.
