The multi-ethnic Dallas Black Dance Theatre has been actively performing since 1976, making it the oldest continuously operating dance company in Dallas. Through its varied repertory and broad educational programs, DBDT has consistently sought to bridge art, culture, and community. Designated as a 2007-2008 “American Masterpiece Touring Artist” by the National Endowment for the Arts, the company has been recognized on both national and international stages. DBDT was also selected to represent the United States at the 1992 Universal Exposition (Expo ’92) in Seville, Spain and invited to perform in the 1996 Olympic Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, becoming the first Texas arts organization to participate in a Cultural Olympiad.
