Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

A New York institution, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has performed for over 20 million people throughout the United States and on every continent except Antarctica — hopefully a penguin piece is in the works. Founded in 1958 by renowned choreographer and dancer Alvin Ailey, the modern dance company first performed at New York’s 92nd Street Y and their first tours were in station wagons. In the ‘60s, AAADT was chosen as part of John F. Kennedy’s progressive “President’s Special International Program for Cultural Presentations,” touring Asia and Australia as American cultural ambassadors. Ailey died in 1989, but his company lived on, sharing his legacy and new works with the world. The company has fostered the dance and choreography careers of hundreds of artists and continues to be a major force in dance.

Saw program C. Wish I could see all. Lively, engaging, flawlessly executed modern dance. The piece from 1960 is so fresh that it looks like it was choreographed yesterday. (Or maybe the day before the last election.) Highly recommend.

Alvin Ailey Dance Theater is always amazing! Program A was my favorite this season. The performance with the strobe light, spot light, and one dancer was stellar. Program C was also strong. I enjoyed Uprising which consists of all male dancers....continued
