The Dance Complex Timeline

The Dance Complex (DC) was founded in 1991 by Rozann Kraus and continues to operate at the Odd Fellows Hall, 536 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, Massachusetts as of 2015. It is well-known for its eclectic mix of contemporary, classical, street, multicultural, and other dance forms.
This timeline was partially funded by a grant from Cambridge Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. We would like to thank Adrienne Marie Naylor (Project Archivist) and Samantha Govoni for their contributions to this project as well as the Emerson College Archives and Special Collections. Special thanks to Peter DiMuro, Kara Fili, Rozann Kraus and Jayne Murphy for their time as well.
