Arthur Mitchell in front of Church of the Master


Dance Theatre of Harlem

Dance Theatre of Harlem
New York, United States

The Church of the Master was one of the first spaces that Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook used to teach classes.

In the fall of 1969 Arthur Mitchell purchased a dance floor and ballet barres and began teaching classes to children in the basement.

“The gymnasium had an observers’ galley along one side, so we instituted a policy of open rehearsals each Wednesday afternoon to which school children, senior citizens and club groups were invited."

Karel Shook
