Published 4 years ago

The Dance Theatre of Harlem was founded by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook during the height of the civil rights movement back in 1969. It initially started out inside a converted garage in Harlem and the relaxed dress code allowed anyone to enroll. The theatre quickly grew in popularity and by 1979 was doing tours all over the world.

Recently, the Dance Theatre of Harlem released a majestic video showing the ballet dancers performing on the streets of New York’s Harlem neighborhood, and it did not take long for it to go viral. Check it out below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
