Dennis Nahat gets his pink slip.

Nahat, who co-founded the Cleveland Ballet 40 years ago, piloted his dancers through a cooperative venture as San Jose Cleveland Ballet and oversaw its transition to Ballet San Jose, says that his immediate plans are to concentrate on his commitment as adjudicator of the Silicon Valley International Art Competition in Cupertino. He will also enter discussions with Ballet San Jose over granting permission for the company to continue performing the more than 80 ballets he choreographed for the company, to which he still owns the rights.

The Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble visits Alabama this week.

In the decades since its founding, the company has always had a strong focus on education. Keith Saunders, director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, said that focus will be much in evidence on Tuesday.

First comes an 11 a.m. “lecture demonstration” for students, which Saunders describes as “a performance on the art of the dance in which we show and explain to the young people what we as classically trained artists do.”
