Article

Eleo Pomare was a dancer, choreographer, educator, and social activist who spent more than five decades contributing to the development of modern dance. As a teenager, he enrolled in the High School of Performing Arts in New York and formed a fledgling dance company while he was a student. After graduating, he expanded his group and presented his first major concert at the 92nd Street Y in 1959, a significant venue for emerging talent. In 1967, under the auspices of the Harlem Cultural Council, he co-founded the Dancemobile along with one of his dancers, Carole Y. Johnson. Together they began to produce outdoor summer dance concerts in New York City and surrounding areas.
