Dance Theatre of Harlem New York season!!

The Vision Gala on April 4—the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—reflects on the legacy of Dr. King and the impact of that tragic event. In February 1969, less than a year after King’s death, Arthur Mitchell and his mentor, Karel Shook, founded Dance Theatre of Harlem as a beacon of hope for the youth in the neighborhood where Mitchell grew up. In a few short years, his response to tragedy became a leading dance institution of unparalleled global acclaim. Join Dance Theatre of Harlem for an evening of ballet and special guests celebrating the life-affirming beauty and call to action that grew out of loss.
