About the Performance:

See power on pointe when Dance Theatre of Harlem returns to City Center after last year’s triumphant homecoming. This season highlights great female choreographers, with New York premieres by the incomparable Dianne McIntyre and classical ballet doyenne Elena Kunikova—along with the return of Helen Pickett’s stellar When Love and fan favorite Nacho Duato’s restless Coming Together.​
