Dance Theatre of Harlem Eminent Artist-in-Residence Program
 

Fall, 2017

During my 2016-2017 sabbatical in NYC, I was in a unique position to conceive and coordinate the multiple aspects and possibilities for an extended residency with Dance Theatre of Harlem through the University of Wyoming’s Eminent Artists-in-Residence Program to take place over eight weeks, Fall
semester 2017.  


Inspired by the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s history, raison d’être, and unique artistic journey to its
current status as a company of international acclaim, the Department of Theatre and Dance was thrilled
to host DTH in events including:


 Two weeks of DTH in-residence at UW; twenty-six classes/rehearsals with UW students
 DTH Gala Concert featuring world premiere of Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Harlem on My Mind
    with credit to the University of Wyoming in all future performances
 Six weeks of DTH extended residency with former principal dancers Charmaine Hunter and Tai
    Jimenez; 45 workshops/lectures and outreach; DTH rep and original work staged on UW dancers
 DTH lecture-demonstration for audience of 1800 elementary students, A&S Auditorium
 Dancing in the Streets, "jam session" with DTH, UW students and public
 Open panel, Meet the DTH Dancers
 Fall for Dance concert featuring UW dancers in DTH works, UW Main Stage season
