Janet Collins 100th Birthday Celebration


Janet Collins was the first and only African American to become Prima Ballerina at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. That was over 60 years ago and she alone today still holds that accomplishment.

Just as Jackie Robinson broke the color barriers of baseball, Janet Collins broke the toughest barrier in the all-white world of classical ballet. Yet she still remains virtually unknown.

Join us in celebrating her legacy...

Featuring: 

Dance Theatre of Harlem School



  Melody Fader, Pianist

Book Signing with Book signing with Yaël Tamar Lewin (book: Night's Dancer: Celebrating Janet Collins at 100)
