The Dance Theater of Harlem was founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell, the first black principal dancer at New York City Ballet, and Karel Shook. At the height of the civil rights movement, the Dance Theater of Harlem created a haven for dancers of all colors who craved an opportunity to excel in the classical ballet world. Now, through performances, community engagement and arts education, the Company carries forward Dance Theater of Harlem’s message of empowerment through the arts for all.

Bloomberg Philanthropies was The Dance Theater of Harlem Vision Gala’s 2022 lead season sponsor.
