Dance Theatre of Harlem is a leading dance institution of unparalleled global acclaim that uses the art form of classical ballet to change people’s lives.

Dance Theatre of Harlem was founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell and the late Karel Shook. Mitchell, the first African American dancer to become a principle dancer with a major U. S. ballet company (New York City Ballet), believed in the power of training in a classical art form to bring discipline and focus to a challenged community. Dance Theatre of Harlem’s unprecedented success is built on creating innovative and bold new forms of artistic expression.

Now celebrating its 45th year, the internationally acclaimed Dance Theatre of Harlem remains committed to the excellence that has sustained it over the years. At the same time, it is dedicated to reaching new audiences with a powerful message of self-reliance, artistic relevance, and individual responsibility all hallmarks of an organization that has played a key role in the national cultural dialogue.
