Dallas Arts District Community Breakfast
Dallas Arts District will present Desmond Richardson as the Keynote Artist/Speaker for their Annual Community Breakfast. With his technical virtuosity and statuesque expressive demeanor, Richardson has worked on Broadway and in film and television. He was the first African American principal dancer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Frankfurt Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre, and is co-artistic director with master choreographer Dwight Rhoden of Complexions Contemporary Ballet.
Richardson received a Tony Award nomination for his role in the Broadway original cast of Fosse, played the principal character of Tony in Twyla Tharp’s Broadway production Movin’ Out, made his Broadway singing debut in the Burt Bacharach/Hal David-Ann Reinking/Scott Ellis production The Look Of Love, and was a standout in the Tony Award-winning After Midnight.
