Dallas Black Dance Theatre To Host Virtual Spring Performance Featuring Alicia Graf Mack

The new works celebrate the triumphs of the human spirit.

Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s (DBDT) Spring Celebration performance features guest artist Alicia Graf Mack, Dean and Director at The Juilliard School, following an esteemed career as the principal dancer at two major dance companies. The works in this year’s Spring Celebration performance celebrate the triumphs of the human spirit. The on-demand virtual performance will be held from Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 7:00 pm to Sunday, May 23, 2021, at 11:59 pm CDT.

Guest artist Alicia Graf Mack performs a sentimental solo Don’t Stop from a New York City rooftop. Graf Mack appears in the official music video of Academy Award-winning composer Jon Batiste from his album “Hollywood Africans.” Graf Mack and Batiste first met while performing “Don’t Stop” in honor of dance icon Carmen de Lavallade at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2017. Graf Mack was a former principal dancer at both the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and the Dance Theatre of Harlem during her dance career.

DBDT veteran dancer and rehearsal assistant Claude Alexander III takes you on an emotional journey through the process of forgiveness and unconditional love in his full company work, A Tender Pardon.

The program will also feature an emotionally moving male trio, Evidence of Souls Not Seen, choreographed by Lloyd Whitmore. The work is a beautiful requiem that expresses mourning of the deaths for those we hold close to our hearts.
