Mahogany Strings features DMV's award-winning contemporary ballet Dissonance Dance Theatre with music by classical and urban-infused classical composers. A mixed-repertory dance concert where classical ballet changes stylistic perception through music: classical, jazz, and hip-hop.
We cannot stereotype one another, nor should we want to. Mahogany Strings blindly looks at classical ballet as cultural dance of a group of people. Like America we all grow strongly when we grow from our differences. It's time for classical ballet to meet 21st century musical swag.

...DDT gives so many highly trained dancers the ability to perform intelligent work by local and guest choreographers. The company’s multi-racial makeup, youthful exuberance, and high quality professionalism, give it a solid place as something to be proud of within the District dance scene. When Short stated 'I’m happy that you came' during the Q& session, I thought to myself, 'me too.'
