For more than two decades, DJD has captivated audiences with soulful music and riveting dance performances. Rooted in jazz, DJD weaves African soul together with rhythm and groove to achieve stage success that has garnered international attention. DJD performs two original productions each year (Spring and Fall) and takes select shows on the road – touring across Canada. Spring performances have become legendary in Calgary as DJD serves up live jazz music with high-energy dance for an annual show at the Max Bell Theatre. The Grand is also a popular venue for DJD, where echoes of famous performers from the past lend authenticity and reverence to the spirited performances.
