For 50 years, Dance Theatre of Harlem has inspired the world with DTH co-founders Karel Shook and Arthur Mitchell’s revolutionary vision of a multi-ethnic ballet company that performs ground-breaking works with power and grace.
Following the sudden passing of Arthur Mitchell in September we dedicate the 50th anniversary season to him, his life and legacy.
