Blumenthal Performing Arts, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture and Wells Fargo present Dance Theatre of Harlem at Charlotte's Levine Center for the Arts. The multi-event collaboration will include a five month long exhibition of Dance Theatre of Harlem: 40 Years of Firsts which opens January 22, 2016, at the Gantt Center, as well as five dance performances in Knight Theater January 22-24, 2016.
Showcasing January 22 - June 26, 2016, this majestic exhibition of dazzling costumes, set pieces, and historic video excerpts celebrates an iconic company and its corps who defied prejudice, and gravity itself, in pursuit of their talent. In the process, the company made history and shattered barriers for future generations of aspiring performers. Dance Theatre of Harlem is a celebration of courage, and of the magic and uplifting power of the performing arts.
