Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
April 18 - April 19
From the beginning, Alvin Ailey envisioned a company dedicated to enriching the American modern dance heritage and preserving the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience. He became one of the trailblazers of modern dance. In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world.” Under the leadership of Robert Battle, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater continues to embody the legacy of its founder by celebrating artistic excellence, unbounded creativity, and the power of art to transform and engage.
