LaRocque Bey School of Dance Theatre Inc. was established by the late LaRocque Bey in the Harlem community in 1960. The school offered dance classes in traditional African Dance for as little as 25 cents per lesson in the Harlem-based Lincoln Projects 47 years ago.

Today, under the direction of Brother Jerome Hunter, the school continues to provide cultural enrichment to an economically depressed community. In 1967, the school was incorporated as a nonprofit, tax exempt organization. Since it's inception, the school has taught well over 15,000 students and have trained many students that have appeared in and on Broadway productions, as well as television and movies.
