The Dallas Black Dance Theatre returns with their Cultural Awareness performance. The game of life is reflected in dance through the games we play and the history we preserve.

The world premiere of Swipe Left by DBDT veteran dancer Sean J. Smith looks at the complicated mindset of a woman desperately trying to find love in all the wrong places. The performances take place at the Wyly Theatre, a few blocks from Pearl/Arts District Station on all four DART Rail lines.
