Dance the family over to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit to experience Dance Theatre of Harlem: 40 Years of Firsts June 16-Dec. 31, 2011 – and be part of an empowering history!

Families learn about the famous dance company that evolved from a small studio to a worldwide touring company, thanks to Arthur Mitchell. Experience the rare memorabilia from the company's 40 years of growth with costumes, photos and choreography from the archives of The New York Public Library.
