In Fall of 2012, after an 8-year hiatus, the Dance Theatre of Harlem returned to the stage under the direction of founding member and former principal ballerina Virginia Johnson. On the eve of the company’s comeback, filmmaker Gabrielle Lamb, herself a dancer, followed young members of the DTH Ensemble (second company) who aspired to make the transition into the main troupe. In a collage of voice-overs by Ms. Johnson and the dancers with both present-day and archival footage, Ms. Lamb tells the story of the talented artists who have created a unique and resilient American institution.
