For 50 years, Dance Theatre of Harlem has been spreading a message of empowerment through the arts. In recent years, the historic company has used its superlative, multiethnic group of artists to present a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century. For this celebratory evening, the company dances signature works that embody this impressive legacy. The magic of the night begins with London-born, Paris-based singer-songwriter ALA.NI, who brings the spirit of Billie Holiday and Judy Garland to her jewel box of intimate songs.
