Continuing its almost a half-century legacy of breaking boundaries and transforming lives through ballet, the classically American and globally renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem puts power on pointe with gorgeous works by George Balanchine, Darrell Grand Moultrie and Christopher Wheeldon. The evening’s spectacular finale will be the triumphant restaging of the seminal 1974 ballet, Dougla, by Trinidad-born visual artist, actor, dancer and choreographer, Geoffrey Holder. Colorfully depicting the exotic pageantry of a Trinidadian wedding ceremony, Dougla has been lovingly reconstructed by Holder’s wife, the legendary dancer Carmen de Lavallade, son Leo and iconic DTH artists, including Pan American Life Insurance Group Master Artist, Donald Williams. The expanded cast of dancers will also feature four guest artists from NOBA’s Center for Dance.

"The enthusiastic applause for the revival of Dougla started as soon as the curtain rose." The New York Times
