Dance Theatre of Harlem

Forty-plus years of history mixed together in one traveling exhibition—can it really be done? Dance Theater of Harlem took on the task, and is now touring Dance Theatre of Harlem: 40 Years of Firsts around the country for fans to enjoy.

 

How come there are still so few black women in ballet? As Dance Theatre of Harlem makes its comeback this year, many dance fans are looking at the rosters of other major American ballet companies, and wondering why, in 2013, there is still so little diversity. Some say the African American community just isn't interested enough in ballet.

Virginia Johnson, Pointe's founding editor in chief, will hold a free master class at Dance Theatre of Harlem studios on Sunday from 11 am to 1 pm!

 

Now artistic director of Dance Theatre of Harlem, Johnson invites advanced students to get a taste of DTH and learn about their Professional Training Program, a training intensive designed to give advanced students the career skills and high level dance competence required by the field.
