The Dance of Harlem (DTH), the groundbreaking black classical dance troupe, whose visit to South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center last season – after a nearly 20-year absence – was such a powerful artistic and community event, returns to SMDCAC as part of its 50th Anniversary season a celebration of 50 years of passion, power and perfection.
This year’s program features a special performance of “Dougla,” choreographed by the beloved Trinidadian dancer, choreographer and actor Geoffrey Holder. The piece will be a collaboration between DTH and The Peter London Global Dance Company, a local troupe recognized as South Florida’s leading professional multi-cultural contemporary dance company.
