Offstage + Unbound: Episode 13 – An Interview with Dwight Rhoden, Complexions Contemporary Ballet

In the 13th installment of “Offstage and Unbound,” The Music Center’s President and CEO Rachel Moore chats with Dwight Rhoden, founding artistic director and resident choreographer of Complexions Contemporary Ballet.

Rhoden has established a remarkably wide-ranging career, earning distinction from The New York Times as “one of the most sought out choreographers of the day.” A native of Dayton, Ohio who began dancing at age 17, Rhoden has performed with Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Les Ballet Jazz De Montreal and as a principal dancer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. In 1994, Rhoden and legendary dancer Desmond Richardson founded Complexions Contemporary Ballet. Together they have brought their unique brand of contemporary dance to the world for nearly two decades.


Complexions Contemporary Ballet returns to The Music Center on April 20, 21 and 22, 2018 with StarDust, a dance tribute to David Bowie. Tickets on sale now.
