The Dance Theatre of Harlem is showcasing the power of diversity through a new short film that highlights Black ballet dancers.
High Above is a short film that takes us through the death of a Black girls grandmother, ultimately inspiring her to want to dance. The short piece reminds us of just how much the power of representation has on our youth. Grammy-award winning artist India Arie provides the soundtrack for the music, which also happens to be her lead single.
The 4-minute piece is a promotional piece for Dance Theatre of Harlem's spring engagement at New York City Center which takes place from April 19-22nd.
