Dance Theatre of Harlem

Cobb Great Hall

The internationally acclaimed Dance Theatre of Harlem is celebrating close to 50 years of creating vivid and ingenious forms of expression, bringing a contemporary flair to ballet repertoire and to diverse international audiences. Arthur Mitchell, the first African-American male principal dancer in a major U.S. ballet company, and the late Karel Shook founded the company as a response to the growing need for more artistic opportunities for children, especially those living in Harlem. Since then, this multicultural dance ensemble has achieved extraordinary success with powerful messages of self-reliance, artistic relevance and individual responsibility.

There will be a Spotlight Dinner available prior to this performance at 5:45pm for $55 per guest.

Immediately following the performance, company members will lead a brief discussion and take questions from the audience inside the Cobb Great Hall.

Sponsored by The Lansing Board of Water and Light; and L.O. Eye Care.
