Dance Theatre of Harlem

Jan 23 - 24 , 2016 · KNIGHT THEATER at Levine Center for the Arts

Prices begin at $19.50

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts

Blumenthal Performing Arts and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts+Culture have joined forces with Wells Fargo to bring Dance Theatre of Harlem to Charlotte’s Levine Center for the Arts. The multi-event collaboration includes a five month long exhibition on the history of the world-renowned dance company opening January 2016 at the Gantt Center, as well as five dance performances in Knight Theater Jan. 22-24, 2016.

Dance Theatre of Harlem is a leading dance institution of unparalleled global acclaim, encompassing a performing Ensemble, a leading arts education center and Dancing Through Barriers®, a national and international education and community outreach program. Each component of Dance Theatre of Harlem carries a solid commitment towards enriching the lives of young people and adults around the world through the arts.

Founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook, Dance Theatre of Harlem was considered “one of ballet’s most exciting undertakings” (The New York Times, 1971). Shortly after the assassination of The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mitchell was inspired to start a school that would offer children — especially those in Harlem, the community in which he was born — the opportunity to learn about dance and the allied arts. Now in its fourth decade, Dance Theatre of Harlem has grown into a multi-cultural dance institution with an extraordinary legacy of providing opportunities for creative expression and artistic excellence that continues to set standards in the performing arts. Dance Theatre of Harlem has achieved unprecedented success, bringing innovative and bold new forms of artistic expression to audiences in New York City, across the country and around the world.
