For 50 years, Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) has demonstrated how the power of art can transform lives by providing access to ballet for all. Founded in 1969 by the legendary Arthur Michell and his former teacher, Karen Shook, DTH has grown into a globally-acclaimed dance institution that occupies a distinguished place in New York City’s cultural landscape and the forefront of American artistic achievement.

While continuing to build on the Founders’ vision, artistic director Virginia Johnson, a founding member and former prima ballerina, has brought new energy to DTH since her appointment in 2010. Chautauqua Institution is proud to present this ballet company comprised of African American and other diverse artists who perform the most demanding repertory at the highest level. DTH’s debut performance at Chautauqua will be a thrilling collaboration to remember when they take the stage with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra and music director Rossen Milanov.
