What does dance give you? The freedom to be who you are, and do what you want to do.
Arthur Mitchell, founder of DTH
Now a singular presence in the ballet world, the Dance Theatre of Harlem Company tours nationally and internationally, presenting a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century. The 17-member, multi-ethnic company performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works by George Balanchine and resident choreographer Robert Garland, as well as innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture. Through performances, community engagement, and arts education, the Company carries forward Dance Theatre of Harlem’s message of empowerment through the arts for all.
Join us after the performance for a Q&A with Virginia Johnson, Artistic Director of Dance Theatre of Harlem.
