Harlem Stage will be streaming the post-class conversation on Facebook Live from 6:15–6:45PM

Harlem Stage is honored to host world renowned Misty Copeland who will lead a ballet class designed to deepen the engagement in the arts for young ballet students in the Harlem Community and collaborate with Harlem arts organizations. Students selected by and from Dance Theater of Harlem and Harlem School for the Arts will participate in a one-hour ballet class with Ms. Copeland. We will open the Harlem Stage Gatehouse to students and their families to experience the inspiring, empowering, and history making Misty Copeland. 

 

The Ballet Class will be followed by an intimate conversation around the concept of “being the first” between Misty Copeland and legendary dancer, choreographer and actress, Carmen De Lavallade, moderated by Zita Allen from New York Amsterdam News. 

This event is made possible with the generous support of Valentino D. Carlotti.
