The Dance Theatre of Harlem

The Dance Theatre of Harlem is back and is starting their new tour at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts! After eight years off the road, the legendary group has picked the Possibility City for the opening night of the tour, Saturday, Oct. 20th.
The Dance Theatre of Harlem was founded in 1969 following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and was inspired by "the power of art to transform". The initial goal of the founders, Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook,  was to start a school to teach children, especially those in Harlem, about dance and the arts. The company began with African-American dancers that were excluded from other troupes because of their skin color.
With the slogan, "Using the Arts to Ignite the Mind", the show will roll into the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts this coming Saturday with tickets starting at $22.50. The show is appropriate for all ages and DTH will invite local children to join them onstage during the program!
