Description: Dance Theatre of Harlem II is comprised of sixteen young dance artists trained in the DTH style and developed in the spirit that transformed perceptions about ballet. Carrying on the legacy begun by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook when they founded Dance Theatre of Harlem forty-two years ago, the company, now under the artistic direction of Virginia Johnson, presents an eclectic and vibrant mix of neoclassical and contemporary ballets. For the Joyce season, the program includes a stirring new ballet by acclaimed choreographer Donald Byrd and Glinka Pas de Trois, a rarely seen Balanchine work.
Venue Description: An inexpensive dance theater located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, inside the former Elgin 1940's movie house. Renowned companies such as Complexions, FOCUS DANCE, MOMIX, Parson, and many others make this their NYC stop.
