Now a singular presence in the ballet world, the Dance Theatre of Harlem tours nationally and internationally, presenting a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century. The 17-member, multi-ethnic company performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works by George Balanchine and resident choreographer Robert Garland, as well as innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture. Through performances, community engagement and arts education, the company carries forward Dance Theatre of Harlem’s message of empowerment through the arts for all.
This performance will feature a new work, “Passage,” by choreographer Claudia Schreier set to the evocative score of Jessie Montgomery. The signature piece reflects historic events that transpired in Virginia 400 years ago. “Passage” was commissioned by the Virginia Arts Festival and 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution, the state agency organizing several of the 1619 anniversary events.
