Dance Theater of Harlem Ensemble - and Shreveport native Ashley Murphy - to dance at the Strand Theater Tues, Feb 10, 7:30 pm

"Our own Ashley Murphy," says Carol Anglin, "will return to Shreveport February 10 & 11 to dance with the reknowned Dance Theater of Harlem. There will be a performance for the general public in addition to two student performances of the renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble!"

"Bailey and I attended the tour in NYC in December at Aaron Davis Hall - City College in Harlem - and we were thrilled to see Ashley in so many principal roles in the choreography throughout the performance. Ashley has matured into an exquisite young dancer who can dance with any major ballet or modern dance company in the world."

The public performance is Tuesday, Feb. 10th @ 7:30 pm at the Strand.

On Wednesday, February 11th - which is the actual 40th Anniversary of the Dance Theatre of Harlem, there will be two student performances.
10:30 am... 1,500 Caddo Parish 5th graders
12:00 noon...1,500 Bossier Parish 5th graders

"Plans are for Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters to announce Dance Theatre of Harlem's 40th Anniversary on The View live from the Strand Theatre in Shreveport, LA. George Sirven and KTBS will help us link everything – if all goes as planned!" added Anglin.
