About

"WONDERFUL TO SEE”
—THE NEW YORK TIMES
Repertoire Program

Dance Theatre of Harlem’s 2018 season promises to be a thrilling evening of dance, featuring unique and inspiring works that reflect the company’s rich legacy and the diversity of 21st century ballet. Highlights include the New York premieres of acclaimed choreographer Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Harlem on My Mind, George Balanchine’s beloved Valse-Fantaisie and Christopher Wheeldon’s sublime This Bitter Earth, plus the revival of the legendary choreographer Geoffrey Holder’s masterwork Dougla, featuring guest artists and live music.

Vision Gala Program

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.
