ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A renowned dance troop will perform in Albany with affordable ticket prices thanks to a $10,000 grant.

The money from the National Endowment for the Arts will allow Albany State to bring the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble to town.

Tickets for the February show will range from five to 20 dollars. The group will hold a lecture series for area dancers before the performance.

"To bring the dance theater of Harlem here and make it accessible and affordable to all families, of all races of all ethnic backgrounds of all socioeconomic strata and to make this available to all of our citizens to be able to see and to experience is what we are all about at Albany State University," said ASU College of Arts & Humanities Dean Dr. Leroy Bynum.

Tickets go on sale December 15th at the Albany Civic Center Box office. The performance will be February 1st at the Albany Municipal Auditorium.
