Dance Theatre of Harlem tours U.S. this fall
The historic and vastly resilient Dance Theatre of Harlem will set out on a tour to cities across the U.S. next month, with the first performance set for Richmond, Virginia on Friday, October 10.
The 17-member company will present audiences a repertoire comprised of DTH classics, as well as cutting-edge new works that bring unprecedented relevance to classical ballet.
Following its performance in Virginia, Dance Theatre of Harlem will tour to Washington D.C. for performances on October 17-19 at Washington Performing Arts, where the ensemble sold out its evening show last fall.
Next, the ensemble will return to Gammage Auditorium in Tempe, Arizona from October 24-25. Then Artistic Director Virginia Johnson will send the troupe to company dancer Ashley Murphy’s home stomping grounds – Louisiana. DTH will perform at the River Center for the Performing Arts in Baton Rouge on Tuesday, October 28.
In November, DTH will tour to: the Kentucky Center in Louisville, Kentucky; the Touhill Performing Arts Center in St. Louis, Missouri; and Wharton Center for the Performing Arts in East Lansing, Michigan. The final stop will be in Chicago at the Auditorium Theater of Roosevelt University.
