The Dance Theater of Harlem Ensemble is a professional troupe of sixteen young dancers trained at the Dance Theater of Harlem. The school was founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook, with the goal of bringing awareness of the ballet and the arts to children in the community. The Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble embarks on its 2010–2011 national tour, offering diverse audiences their unique yet classic brand of dance.
The ensemble's presentation will center on the art of ballet, but will include a variety of dance forms. Acclaimed for revolutionizing the non-minority casting of ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem also brought this classic art form to the inner cities sparking the dreams of underprivileged communities through the United States. The beautiful dancing and exquisite grace of this group of talented young dancers will captivate audiences. Through the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, all members of the audience, regardless of familiarity with dancing, will gain new knowledge and appreciate for the art of dance.
