Celebrate 50 years of Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH), a singular presence in the dance world presenting a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century. Founded in 1969 in response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the beloved, multiethnic company of 17 dancers performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works as well as innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African-American culture. A multicultural institution with an extraordinary legacy, DTH brings bold new forms of artistic expression to audiences in New York City, across the country and around the world, carrying forward DTH’s message of empowerment through the arts for all.
