lecture demonstrations/PERFORMANCES

The Dance Theatre of Harlem's Lecture Demonstration/Performance (LD/P) is an informal presentation on the art and science of dance.  Through engaging commentary and dancing, the viewer learns the rudiments of classical ballet as well as the building-block training process that allows dancers to achieve excellence in this exacting art form.  The program also includes repertory excerpts and audience engagement activity.  Each LD/P includes an audience engagement activity and concludes with a Q & A.  The LD/P runs approximately 50 minutes, but can be tailored to suit time frames between 50-60 minutes. (Grades K - 12)
