Dance Theatre of Harlem hosted two masterclasses the day before their much anticipated public performance. Hosted at the FSU School of Dance, students from FSU, Tallahassee Ballet and Ballet Arts Conservatory of Tallahassee got on point with two dancers from the company.
For the public performance, all participants from the masterclass and other local organizations, including Maddox Youth Dance Company, Dance Fusion Tallahassee, and The Oasis Center For Women & Girls, attended the energetic and vibrant show. These groups created community by sharing their love of dance in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall—many for the first time.
“Dance Theatre of Harlem was absolutely breathtaking and Opening Nights just opened the eyes of a lot of impressionable young dancers that have never had the privilege to see anything like this in person before” – Wendy Crawford, Owner and Artistic Director of Dance Fusion Tallahassee
