William B. McClellan, Jr., a long-time Dayton Contemporary Dance Company dancer and choreographer, has died.

RoNita Hawes-Saunders, DCDC’s executive director, said the company received word Wednesday morning of McClellan’s passing. Details were not immediately available.

“Not only was he a tremendous performer, but he had a very outgoing spirit. He had a really pleasant demeanor,” Hawes-Saunders said.

“He was personality in addition to a dancer.”

McClellan earned a bachelor’s degree in dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2000. He started with DCDC in 2002.

Hawes-Saunders said McClellan was featured in many DCDC performances before leaving the area several years ago to pursue a master’s degree.
