Meet Fred Davis & Francis Lawrence

Fred Davis hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Jacob Lawrence hails from Australia. Both gentlemen ended up together for several eventful and artistically satisfying seasons at Dance Theatre of Harlem. Fred has maintained a steady guesting and teaching schedule throughout the pandemic (remotely). Francis is coming off a recent tour of 'American in Paris' by Christopher Wheeldon.


Artistic Director has tapped them to appear in the Digital Dance Series beginning with Francis Lawrence in the April premiere by Nicole Tongue ("The Family Visit") and Fred Davis in Raphael's own new ballet, "Please god, heal this land," which were livestreamed on May 30th.
