Dance Theatre of Harlem’s The Art of Ballet - April 27 to May 11

A Virtual Lecture Demonstration

Viewable on-demand:
Tuesday, April 27, 10:30am CDT through Tuesday, May 11 11:59pm, CDT
Perfect for grades 5-12.
Registration required.

Join members of the Dance Theatre of Harlem for a fun, accessible introduction to the art of ballet. In this lecture demonstration, the dancers pull back the curtain to reveal how the elements of classical ballet training, choreography, and theatrical production come together to create the magic of a ballet performance. The hour-long program is divided into three sections: a brief history of DTH and the art form of ballet, demonstrations of basic ballet training (barre, women’s pointe work, men’s center work, pirouettes, and lifts) and stagecraft, followed by four excerpts from the Dance Theatre of Harlem repertoire.
