Dance Theatre of Harlem 


"The arts ignite the mind, they give you the possibility to dream and hope." - Arthur Mitchell

Artistic Director, Virginia Johnson


In 1969, at the height of the civil rights movement, Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook founded Dance Theatre of Harlem. Their vision remains one of the most democratic in dance. The legendary company of 17 brilliant dancers returns to White Bird to perform a program of dance by outstanding American choreographers past and present that will pay tribute to the pioneering spirit of the late Arthur Mitchell, one of the most beloved figures in American dance.
