>> From Charlie Brown to Chevy Chase, the holidays come to life on stage
“So many of our dancers are very gifted and talented beyond just their dance artistry,” Blunden-Diggs noted. “So, when we do programming of this nature, it gives them an opportunity to create also. The concert will be very full, exciting and embracing. I think people will feel very covered and uplifted as we go into this holiday season. It’s great to have the Dayton community come together to celebrate the holidays. It is a season for giving and sharing. Stepping into our 51st season is no small feat. If not for our dream of our founder, Jeraldyne Blunden, we would not have this wonderful legacy that lives on throughout Dayton, the nation and the globe. I’m looking forward to celebrating with you the gifts of our abundant blessings.”
