About Dance Theatre of Harlem
Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) is a leading dance institution of unparalleled global acclaim, encompassing an international touring ballet company, a training school for ballet and the allied arts and Dancing Through Barriers®, a celebrated arts education and community outreach program.
The assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. compelled Arthur Mitchell, with his mentor Karel Shook, to start a school that would offer children—especially those in his native Harlem—the opportunity to challenge themselves and grow through the study of a classical art form. Founded in 1969, DTH soon came to be known as “one of ballet’s most exciting undertakings” (The New York Times, 1971).
Now in its fifth decade, DTH has grown into a multi-cultural dance institution with an extraordinary legacy of providing opportunities for creative expression and artistic excellence that sets standards in the performing arts. DTH has achieved unprecedented success, bringing audiences around the world innovative and bold new forms of artistic expression.
