To celebrate the closing weekend of Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take, Dallas Black Dance Theatre will premier a new dance piece inspired by Hodge’s work. The Subtle, The Sum…Give More Than You Take is an acumen translated from the movement and texture of Jim Hodges' work into movement of the body. This work was choreographed by Nycole Ray, director of Dallas Black Dance Theatre II.
Dallas Black Dance Theatre Founder/Artistic Director, Ann Williams, began Dallas Black Dance Theatre II in September 2000 to feature the best and most promising students of the Dallas Black Dance Academy.
