The Dance Theatre of Harlem


Dance Theatre of Harlem is America's leading classical ballet company of black dancers. This studio recording of four of their most popular works - Robert North's Troy Game, Lester Horton's The Beloved, Arthur Mitchell's John Henry and Agnes de Mille’s Fall River Legend - shows off the warmth, vitality and versatility for which they are acclaimed worldwide. North and Mitchell (co-founder of the company) introduce their works, and The Beloved is presented by the two dancers who perform this dramatic ballet.  • Special Commendation at the 1990 Grand Prix International Vidéo Danse / Silver Award at the 1990 New York International Film and Television Festival
