Under the artistic leadership of co-founder Deborah Vaughan, 
DDT has become widely recognized for its presentation of both traditional dances and contemporary choreography drawn from African, Jazz, and Modern dance idioms. The diversity and inclusiveness of DDT’s repertoire is unique to the company, and has contributed greatly to its reputation for innovative dynamism. DDT has garnered national and international acclaim for its performances. The company has traveled to Nigeria, Jordan, Germany, Zimbabwe, and Cuba, and has danced throughout the United States. DDT has advanced African American dance as an art form through a series of interdisciplinary collaborations with composers, musicians and singers working in a wide variety of African and African American traditions: Hugh Masekela, the Edwin Hawkins Singers (gospel), Street Sounds (a capella spirituals and blues), Cab Calloway (jazz), Chanticleer (a capella spirituals), Omar Sosa (Cuban jazz pianist), and Anthony Brownand Fifth Stream Music.

DDT has also become known for its cross cultural and issues oriented collaborations, bridging cultural, racial, and ethnic differences through the arts. In September 1994 the company staged a full length cross cultural collaborative concert with Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company that confronted rising racial hostilities between the African American and Asian communities. In 1996, Dimensions premiered another issue driven community collaboration:  “Project Panther/Phase I: All Power to the People” was a large scale effort to create a truthful portrayal of the origins, intentions, accomplishments, and significance of the Black Panther Party. DDT celebrated 25 years of artistic excellence and community involvement with a concer that featured world renowned African American poet, Nikki Giovanni.
