This is one of the most energizing experiences ever.

The company is superb and they really connect with the audience.

The show didn't have enough dance routines. Lots of fillers in the show. Dancers were just"average". I was very disappointed I expected more from this dance group. This group was extrodinary in earlier times.

I thought the performance was wonderful! "Arden Court" was beautiful; "Minus 16" was one of the most funny, creative and fun dance numbers I have ever seen; the classic "Revelations" was just awesome.

It was everything we've come to expect of the Alvin Ailey dancers and more. They perform with great verve and style. A perfect show.

Alvin Ailey never disappoints. Swept up in the majesty of the dance, I was lifted by the experience. Everyone should go whether you have been before or not. A winner.

This was the best Alvin Ailey performance I've seen in a few years. I think the new executive director chose choreography that did what it was intended to do - captivate, encourage, entertain, and invigorate us! Much deserved Kudos to him for...continued
