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.

Alvin Ailey is always brilliant and Christmas Day (night) was no exception. Not just for folks who are particularly into "dance", but accessible and likely to thrill most anybody.

If you haven't been an Alvin Ailey fan, you will be after you see this. Enthusiastic, innovative and professional dances the whole night. Great sidelines in the Zellerbach. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Alvin Ailey Dance Company is one of the premier dance companies in the U.S., and for good reason: they showcase lyrical, beautiful pieces with fantastic dancers. The program changes each night (with the exception of Sunday's program, which is the...continued

Energetic dancers, but choreography and movements are fairly standard Modern Dance. Does not push the bodies or the forms very much. Being bypassed by newer groups.
