Reviews of 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

The consistent yearly timing of these, makes planning for my birthday a snap! This year's show (B program) was especially awesome with a new production of "A Winter in Lisbon" (1992), featuring music by Dizzie Gillespie. The flamingo pinks and...continued

Such amazing feats of grace and balance! Beautifully choreographed! Incredibly athletic flowing dance! Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe is so meticulous and refined, that you could see them on a "bad night" and it would have been wonderful!

The opening night dance performances were great! If this is indicative for the remainder of this week, and you have tickets, you will be treated to some of the best dancers & dance performances anywhere!

There is always a good show, especially with their crowd-pleaser "Revelations". Some of the program was soporific, but on the whole, very good. The program does not get started on time; there seems to be a lot of late seating.

Programs are everything. Revelations was great. Lazarus part 1 was confusing. Checked the New York Times review which felt the same. Lazarus part 2 was great. The theme was still obscure but the dancing was great. This is a very talented company

Pure magic. I try to see the Alvin Ailey company whenever they are in LA. This performance included exciting new pieces as well as the always appreciated Revelations.
