"A company whose worldwide popularity is rivaled only by the magnificence of its dancing. Everybody loves Ailey." —San Francisco Chronicle

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has dazzled audiences worldwide for over 50 years with unparalleled artistry. As the US Cultural Ambassador to the world, the company brings African-American cultural expression and the modern dance tradition to stages around the globe. Ailey’s legacy—shaping dancers of extraordinary technique, passion, and inimitable style—continues under the leadership of choreographer Robert Battle, Judith Jamison’s hand-picked successor. Called “possibly the most successful modern dance company on the planet” and “sleek, athletic masters of the universe” (New York Times), the evening includes Ailey’s signature masterpiece, Revelations, which uses African-American spirituals and holy blues to explore the places of deepest grief and utmost joy in the soul.
