Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
April 5, 2023: 7:30 PM
From the organizers:
You don’t just see an Alvin Ailey performance, you feel it. Since its now-fabled performance in 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has grown from a small group of African American dancers to a revolutionary company that transcends barriers and celebrates the African American cultural experience.
In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world.” Under the decade-long leadership of its visionary artistic director, Robert Battle, the company continues to honor the monumental legacy of its founder, while expanding the Ailey repertory and developing the next generation of choreographers.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will perform a program including Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations.
