Dayton Contemporary Dance Company

Director of Development

Posted:
Jul 24, 2018
Responsible to: Chief Executive Officer
Exemption Status: Exempt
Hours: Full time
Effective: April 1, 2018

Background
Founded in Dayton, Ohio in 1968 by the late dancer, teacher, choreographer, and visionary leader Jeraldyne Blunden, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company (DCDC) is one of very few American dance companies of international reputation among those located outside a large US metropolitan city. The company’s mission: Rooted in the African-American experience, the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company is a culturally diverse contemporary dance company committed to reaching the broadest audience through exceptional performance and arts-integrated education. To fulfill the company’s mission, the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company 1) creates, performs, and tours locally, nationally, and globally, dance art of exceptional quality, and 2) delivers premier arts-integrated education services in support of a wide-range of learning audiences in the company’s local community and while on tour nationally and internationally. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018-19, DCDC tours locally, nationally and internationally, including Bermuda, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Russia, and South Korea. In August 2012, the company performed at the grand opening of University of Dayton’s China Institute at the Suzhou Industrial Park in Jiangsu Province, China. Most recently DCDC was recognized with a 2016 New York Dance and Performance Award (Bessie Award), a prestigious accolade in contemporary dance, for its performance of Donald McKayle’s seminal work Rainbow ‘Round My Shoulder at David H. Koch Theatre in Lincoln Center.  The United States Department of State invited DCDC to tour Russia in May, 2018. Approximately 30K people benefit from the company’s performance and touring dance art and its arts-integrated education services.

Summary
Working closely with the Chief Executive Officer, the Director of Development must understand the dual mission of the company, leveraging the company’s artistic and education resources to garner income. Since 2009 the company operates through a business model that allows for the generation of earned income. The Director of Development will therefore manage a vital area of company operations: the cultivation and acquisition of both non-earned (philanthropic) and earned (business) revenue streams.
