Jeraldyne Blunden US Postage Stamp

Help Make it Happen!

Jeraldyne Blunden (1940–1999) was the founder and artistic director of the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company. She left a permanent mark on the field of contemporary dance by founding the oldest modern dance company in Ohio and inspiring generations of choreographers, teachers and dancers. Her company, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, has grown to be one of the largest companies of its kind in the nation, and proudly holds the largest repository of modern dance works,

both classic and contemporary, by African-American choreographers in the world.


The company Jeraldyne Blunden created continues to reach over 10,000 audiences annually in national, and international touring, and online platforms, and serves over 25,000 students, k-12 and beyond, through its educational programming. Imagine a book of US postage stamps with her image in her honor!
