Shortly after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., renowned dancer and choreographer Arthur Mitchell founded the first African American classical ballet company: Dance Theatre of Harlem. On their 50th anniversary, the troupe is touring with an interesting mix of works, touching on pieces infused with pop, classical, and modern music. The show kicks off with The Greatest, a tribute to Mitchell set to George Benson's hit "The Greatest Love of All." Then they roll through George Balanchine's strange, angular Agon and Marius Petipa's classic Le Corsaire. And the revival of Geoffrey Holder's Dougla, which the New York Times calls "a kaleidoscope of costume, color, and choreography" about a mixed Indian and African wedding, is not to be missed. by Rich Smith
