Experience Inside Ballet with Dance Theatre of Harlem on Saturday, August 21st at 4:00 p.m ET at The Isabel and Peter Malkin Stage at Hearst Plaza. This workshop is a part of the BAAND Together Dance Festival and will be led by our very own Company Artists.

Join us for an informal performance that will take viewers into the art of classical ballet, from the training and preparation of a dance artist through the elements of choreography. Following a brief history on ballet and DTH, the performance begins with exercises at the barre and the reasoning behind them before quickly moving on to jumping, partnering and lifts. Finally, viewers can enjoy excerpts from the DTH repertoire showing different styles of ballet, including Darrell Grand Moultrie’s VesselsArthur Mitchell’s Tones II, the adagio from the Le Corsaire Pas de Deux and Robert Garland’s “Mother Popcorn”. Viewers will be able to interact with our Company Artists during a Q&A segment to close the program.

Reserved spots will be available via the TodayTix Lottery. Enter for a chance to win a free ticket (good for up to four people), starting two weeks before the workshop on August 7th. Entries will close three days before the event at 12:59 pm ET. This dance workshop will also be open to general admission.
