The Dayton Contemporary Dance Company will be “Taking It to the Streets” this weekend to bring back the power of dance to Dayton.

On Sunday, Aug. 29, DCDC will host a free concert at Levitt Pavilion featuring company dancers in a repertoire that includes “This I Know for Sure,” “Love Lost,” “Heaven’s Earth,” “Nourishing Routes” and “Traffic.”

“The global health crisis shut down performance venues,” said Ro Nita Hawes-Saunders, DCDC CEO. “But with gratitude to generous grants including the City of Dayton and Montgomery County — DCDC is back — LIVE. What better way to celebrate our return to the stage than a free performance at the wonderful Dayton Levitt Pavilion?”
