40 Stories

Countless individuals have contributed to our history. Their experiences here, along with their subsequent successes, all confirm the ongoing power of the Dance Theatre of Harlem mission.

40 Stories

Countless individuals have contributed to our history. Their experiences here, along with their subsequent successes, all confirm the ongoing power of the Dance Theatre of Harlem mission.

In 2009, DTH celebrated its 40th anniversary, a significant milestone for an organization that made history right from the start. To commemorate our forty years and counting, 40 Stories was conceived as a way to learn about and share with the general public the impact of the DTH experience on the lives of the singular individuals who have come through our doors. The idea on this web page is a video compilation of oral testimonials by Dance Theatre of Harlem alumni—students, dancers, faculty, tech crew, staff and parents. With gratitude for all that you are we invite you to share your story.

Please use your own creativity in creating a high quality video. Position yourself in front of the camera as you feel most comfortable. See below for suggestions for making a clean and clear 3 minute video:

Use a solid background, with nice lighting on your face.

Avoid music in the background

Introduce yourself, including the years you were at DTH and how you came to DTH.

What was your role at DTH? (Were you a company member, on our Administrative or Production Staff, Ensemble member etc.)

Express the impact DTH had on your life.

What was your most memorable moment at DTH?

End with anything else you might want to add.

Have fun, relax and enjoy!

Send any inquiries and DTH related photos (company, school, production etc.) that are unique and relevant to your story to be used on our website and possibly in a DVD for The Gathering 2011 to Jtyrus@dancetheatreofharlem.org
