Dance Theatre of Harlem Residency

Dance Theatre of Harlem Residency

Dance Theatre of Harlem's residency at Chautauqua Institution during the month of April 2021.

During the residency, the company took part in Chautauqua Arts Education programs online with Chautauqua County schools, as well as online conversations on CHQ Assembly featuring artistic director Virginia Johnson and renowned choreographer Tiffany Rea-Fisher. Rea-Fisher’s focus in the residency is a commission in tribute to legendary jazz and classical pianist and singer Hazel Scott, in the year that would have been Scott’s 100th birthday. The Hazel Scott Project has been commissioned by Washington Performing Arts with additional support provided by Dartmouth College Hopkins Center and Chautauqua Institution.

Dance Theater of Harlem’s Chautauqua residency is supported by the Alphadyne Foundation.
