An informal presentation on the art and science of classical dancing, a lecture/demonstration is a fun and accessible introduction to ballet.

Throughout, excerpts from Dance Theatre of Harlem’s eclectic repertoire demonstrate how the elements that have been discussed come together to create the magic of dance.
