2023 New York Season

APRIL 19 – 23, 2023

2023 New York Season


Thank you for attending Dance Theatre of Harlem’s 2023 New York Season at City Center, April 19th-23rd! The Company’s extraordinary dancers shined in two New York premieres: William Forsythe’s Blake Works IV, the latest installment of the choreographer’s continuously evolving work The Barre Project; and a new ballet by Tiffany Rea-Fisher set to an original score created by New York-based DJ and composer Erica Blunt (aka Twelve45) and inspired by the trailblazing Hazel Scott, the classical and jazz musician and civil rights activist. A program of works featured Resident Choreographer Robert Garland‘s latest hit, Higher Ground—named one the best performances of 2022 by The New York Times—as well as Artistic Director Virginia Johnson’s favorite George Balanchine ballet—the joyous Allegro Brillante. Thank you for celebrating for the audacious vision for classical ballet that is Dance Theatre of Harlem.

Special events included pre-show DJ and dancing on the Grand Tier, Divine Nine/HBCU Night and a post-performance talkback with soon-to-be Artistic Director Emerita Virginia Johnson (Friday), and a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the relaunched Company and Virginia Johnson’s final season as Artistic Director (Sunday).
