Black Box Improv Theater

Founder Justin Howard has performed, studied and taught improv in Chicago and New York City. He started The Black Box in 2012 and more than 300 Daytonians have studied at the theater; many currently perform on weekends. The Black Box has teamed with long time Second City musical great Trey Stone to provide shows that push the boundaries of what many couldn’t imagine locally trained comedians can do.

dcdcDayton Contemporary Dance Company

The Bessie Award-winning DCDC is the oldest modern dance company in Ohio. It is one of just a handful of performing arts organizations of international reputation, not based in a major metropolitan area. DCDC serves as a cultural ambassador for Dayton, the Miami Valley and the state of Ohio. Each year the company reaches approximately 30,000 people through performances and education programming.

Radio Basim

Friday nights from 10 to midnight, WYSO 91.3 FM puts Funk music front and center with “Behind the Groove.” Host Basim Blunt turns a mix of retro funk 45s, B-sides and Neo-Funk into two hours of head nodding, booty shaking fun! Basim joined WYSO as a member of the 2012 Community Voices program. His work earned a “New Voices” Scholar award by (AIR) Association of Independents in Radio.
