An anniversary is a thing of certain importance. For a couple, 50 years marks a milestone of memories and time spent together. When a teacher achieves academic tenure, he has earned permanence in his respective position. And when Dayton Contemporary Dance Company’s (DCDC) Artistic Director Debbie Blunden-Diggs has spent 40 years enriching the artistic culture within the company, there seems to be no better reason to celebrate  –– with dance, of course. Marking this momentous occasion will be the first show of DCDC’s 2011-2012 season, Director’s Cut, presented October 8 at 7:30 p.m. and October 9 at 3 p.m. at Stivers School for the Arts. Director’s Cut launches DCDC’s new season, dubbed Frameworks, a special season in celebration of Blunden-Diggs. A member of the company nearly since its founding in 1968 by her mother, the late Jeraldyne Blunden, Blunden-Diggs and her dancers will present a season rich with DCDC classics and exciting new works. “Frameworks is the most appropriate way DCDC can celebrate Debbie’s continuing contribution to the life and art of the dance company,” said DCDC Executive Director Ro Nita Hawes-Saunders in a news release. “The season is named Frameworks to convey the idea of looking back and looking forward, something only done within a frame of reference by which we can scan our milestones and envision our dreams. Such is Debbie’s moment now. Since 2007, when she assumed the artistic directorship, DCDC [has been] her company and her vision.”
