Dyane Harvey-Salaam




 “Abdel and Dyane Harvey-Salaam along with Olabamidele Hart-Husbands joined forces more than 28 years ago to create the Harlem-based Forces of Nature Dance Theatre. In the nearly three decades since, they’ve used their performances, their choreography and their youth education and outreach work as a language to discuss the history and culture of the African diaspora and to motivate people to help preserve the planet.”



To Abdel R. Salaam and Dyane “Harvey-Salaam, dance and choreography must be aesthetically beautiful — but more than that, it must convey a message and inspire thought.”

Dyane has performed with Tony Award Winning George Faison’s Universal Dance Experience, Dunham (dancer) Walter Nicks’ Dance Theatre, Otis Sallid’s New Art Ensemble, internationally recognized Dance Brazil and The Trinidad Repertory Dance Theatre, just to name a few. Most recently she presented Eugene Little’s moving tribute to Syvilla Fort in his version of Bacchanale, assisting Luk Vaes in his doctoral dissertation presentation on the prepared piano in The Hague, Holland.
