New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Arthur Mitchell—the first African American to perform with the New York City Ballet—and Karel Shook established Dance Theatre of Harlem in 1969 to teach Harlem children about dance and related disciplines. The group launched its own company shortly thereafter. In addition to regular performances, Dance Theatre hosts a monthly open house series.
