Dance Theatre of Harlem Returns to Lincoln Center in April

With its newly formed company of 18 diverse and talented dancers, Dance Theatre of Harlem proudly celebrates its annual Vision Gala on Tuesday, February 26. Chelsea Clinton will serve as honorary chair and award-winning actress/singer Vanessa L. Williams will be the 2013 Vision Honoree. The gala performance and dinner, with all proceeds benefiting the DTH School's Next Generation and Community Engagement Funds, will be held at the Mandarin Oriental New York, 80 Columbus Circle at 60th Street. For tickets and information, please contact ShaRon Williams Duncan, Director of Individual Giving, at (212) 690-2800 ext. 434.

Laveen Naidu, Executive Director of Dance Theatre of Harlem, notes that the leadership gift from the Ford Foundation, the Vision Gala and NY Season are conduits for the ballet institution to transform lives. "The financial support we receive and programs we deliver create opportunities for New Yorkers and especially our children to experience the power of the arts. DTH was the first ballet institution to prioritize black dancers and although that role is still vital, its performances provide a way for all of us to see ourselves in ways we might not have imagined."
