In this edition of WYSO Weekend:
Ohio’s oldest modern dance company is celebrating its fiftieth season. That’s right, the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, affectionately known as DCDC, has nurtured generations of dancers. Community Voices producer Jocelyn Robinson introduces us to the family at the heart of the company.
Well, from the earth, to the moon, to the stars beyond, we continue our cultural update with a look at how we view the heavens above. The Mars Insight Lander has been sending outstanding images of the Red planet back to Earth. Mars was visible with the naked eye for much of December just after sunset in the southwest. But if you used a telescope you could see even more of the planet - and other celestial objects. Experienced stargazers know what a miraculous and highly technical instrument the telescope is. In this segment, Community Voices producer Jim Kale tells us about a man from southwest Ohio who makes telescopes and he’s traveled to the rural countryside near the tiny town of Philo, Illinois to meet him.
