Dallas Black Dance Theatre Founder’s Luncheon

I attended Dallas Black Dance Theatre‘s Ninth Annual Founder’s Luncheon this afternoon, in which outstanding members of the community were honored for their contributions to the arts. Among the award winners were Lucy Crow Billingsley, William “Bill” Blair, and Juanita Brown. Guests were also treated to a great performance by DBDT’s award-winning dance troupe.

It has been an honor for me to serve on the board of DBDT, one of the best-run and most talented (though under-appreciated) arts groups in Dallas. Right now, DBDT is working on a capital campaign to turn the Moorland YMCA building at 2700 Flora St. into a performance, practice, and administrative space for the company.
