Ticket holders for the original May 5 & 6, 2020 performances: See below for your options.

Born in 1968 at the height of the civil rights movement, the Dance Theatre of Harlem conveys a message of empowerment for all through the arts. Its founders, Karel Shook and Arthur Mitchell — the latter of whom made history in 1955 as the first black principal dancer in New York City Ballet, believe that the most impactful art is born in moments of extreme injustice and frustration. Now a singular presence in the ballet world, the 17-member, multi-ethnic company celebrates half a century of dance, performing forward-thinking, impassioned repertoire that celebrates African American culture through the language of ballet. Through moving performances, community engagement and arts education, the Dance Theatre of Harlem presents a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century.

Connect with Dance Theatre of Harlem, the company’s work, and other patrons at insightful pre-show discussions starting at 7pm. Tina McGuire Theatre.
