Place Matters Profile

The Alhambra Theatre and Ballroom was established in 1900 and served as a popular dance hall and theatre, witnessing the rise of jazz, the evolution of dance styles and legendary performances by Bessie Smith, Jelly Roll Morton and Billie Holliday. Surviving the Savoy, Celebrity and Renaissance Ballrooms, the Alhambra building is the last remaining of Harlem's historic dance halls, although it is no longer used as such.
