Notes from the Northrop Director of Programming Kristen Brogdon

Dance Theatre of Harlem was scheduled to return to Northrop in October, but they will be returning to rehearsals during that time instead. One of the pieces they’ll be working on when they get back to the studio is the new ballet Higher Ground by Robert Garland, with music by Stevie Wonder. I saw a sneak peek of this ballet in the DTH studios in Harlem, last time I was in New York. If you remember Robert Garland’s Return from the company’s last trip to Northrop, you are going to love this ballet. We’re planning to bring it to you in fall 2021.
