It’s poetry in motion when the legendary dance group, celebrating 47 years of passion, power and perfection, returns for this year’s MLK Celebration at NJPAC. Dance Theatre of Harlem, founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook, was an artistic means of turning despair into hope following the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The New York Times stated, considered “one of ballet’s most exciting undertakings”, it has grown over more than four decades into an innovative, multi-cultural company that brings bold new forms of artistic expression to audiences around the globe. One of the nation’s most vital dance institutions, the company consists of racially diverse dancers, known worldwide for bringing a contemporary flair to classical and neo-classical ballet repertoire. Dance Theatre of Harlem remains committed to artistic excellence, and to reaching new audiences with a powerful message of self-reliance, artistic relevance and individual responsibility.
