Founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook, Dance Theatre of Harlem was considered “one of ballet’s most exciting undertakings” (The New York Times, 1971). After four decades, they promise a thrilling program of neo-classical and contemporary ballet that is of the moment and timeless. With cutting-edge contemporary and ballet works to celebrate African American culture, the racially diverse dance artists carry a message of empowerment.
You’re invited to Meet the Artist! Stay after the show for a brief, informal Q&A session in the theater with the artists. Free and open to all ticket holders, as well as the general public. Events take place in the performance venue immediately following the show.
