She appeared alongside the rest of the company in a 1977 televised production for PBS’s Great Performances: Dance in America: Dance Theatre of Harlem. Hall additionally toured extensively with the company, performing in theaters like the London Coliseum and the Manchester Opera House.

The New York Times’ Jack Anderson called Hall, along with her partner Donald Williams in George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments, “coolly lyrical.” New York Magazine praised the “dignity and musicality” of one of Hall’s performances in 1983.
