The Lesher Center Presents Headliners series will bring the world-renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem to Walnut Creek for two performances only.

Known for its empowering performances of classical and contemporary works in the demonstration of Co-Founder Arthur Mitchell’s premise that ballet belongs to everyone, Dance Theatre of Harlem will present a vibrant program of treasured classics and innovative contemporary works including resident choreographer Robert Garland’s brilliant “Higher Ground” set to the music of Stevie Wonder.

Classics on the program include a contemporary staging of Marius Petipa’s “Odalisques Variations” from “Le Corsaire,” and Christopher Wheeldon’s moving pas de deux “This Bitter Earth.” Also featured is leading contemporary choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s lively “Balamouk.”
