In celebration of the Center’s 60th anniversary, the tribute showcase upholds the mission of a space to cultivate emerging artists, with room for dancers and choreographers from every background to feel comfortable to create the work they want to make. Clark Center has long served as an incubator for young talent and many of the choreographers who worked at the center have gone on to create their own companies. Much of the all-star lineup has been around since the center first opened.  5Plus Ensemble features dancers 50 years of age and older, including former Ailey dancers, Hope Clarke and Michael Thomas; Dyane Harvey (an alumni of Eleo Pomare's company) is a founding member of Forces of Nature Dance Theatre) and award recipient, including multiple AUDELCO Awards as well as a recent nomination for Outstanding Revival for “HEX”, by Eleo Pomare at the 2019 Bessie Awards; Juel D. Lane has been a featured choreographer for Ailey II and had work commissioned by the Atlanta Ballet; Amy Hall Garner has choreographed, coached, and worked as a creative consultant on projects such as Law & Order, and Chappelle’s Show, and teaches at New York University’s New Studio on Broadway at Tisch School of the Arts; and The HSA Dance Ensemble features young dancers from the Harlem School of The Arts, and led by former Ailey dancer, Aubrey Lynch.
