“A premier ballet company and global ambassador for excellence and diversity”
The Washington Post

Two dynamic programs display Dance Theatre of Harlem’s unique and significant vision for ballet, celebrating resiliency, inclusivity, and innovation.

The Company’s extraordinary dancers shine in two New York premieres: William Forsythe’s Blake Works IV, the latest installment of the choreographer’s continuously evolving work The Barre Project; and a new ballet by Tiffany Rea-Fisher set to an original score created by New York-based DJ and composer Erica Blunt (aka Twelve45) and inspired by the trailblazing Hazel Scott, the classical and jazz musician and civil rights activist. A program of works by Resident Choreographer Robert Garland, as well as Artistic Director Virginia Johnson’s favorite George Balanchine ballet—the joyous Allegro Brillante—will also be presented. Join us for the audacious vision for classical ballet that is Dance Theatre of Harlem.
