Aspiring Leadership



Interact with peers and leaders in the arts and cultural community through unique networking, educational and cultural activities. The Aspiring Leadership Society (ALS) is a membership group of Dallas Black Dance Theatre promoting arts awareness, leadership and education. Additionally, ALS sponsors a scholarship to the Dallas Black Dance Academy to provide dance training for students.  Mid and senior level professionals as well as those passionate about the arts are encouraged to become members.

The Aspiring Leadership Society hosts quarterly events during season that provide opportunity for individuals to learn about dance, arts, and culture; as well as get to know fellow arts patrons and leaders.

“The Aspiring Leadership Society provides an opportunity to learn more about DBDT while having fun and meeting those who had a hand in making DBDT successful. We want to bring professionals together to learn how they can be helpful in strengthening DBDT’s community while making new friends along the way,” said Kellie L. Crewse, DBDT Board Member and Chair of the Aspiring Leadership Society.
