“The Ailey dancers are sleek, athletic masters of the universe!”
-The New York Times
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, beloved as one of the world’s most popular dance companies, returns to the Adrienne Arsht Center as part of a 24-city United States tour. In his third season as Artistic Director, Miami’s own Robert Battle continues to expand the Company’s diverse repertory with premieres from a wide range of important choreographers that give Ailey’s extraordinary dancers new ways to inspire audiences, including celebrated dance storyteller Ronald K. Brown’s uplifting Four Corners, multi award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor’s Chroma, and modern dance innovator Bill T. Jones’ joyful tour-de-force D-Man in the Waters.*
Alvin Ailey’s Revelations, an American masterpiece acclaimed as a must-see for everyone, will be the stirring finale for all five performances. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater inspires all in a universal celebration of the human spirit using the African-American cultural experience and the American modern dance tradition.
On Saturday afternoon, bring the whole family to enjoy the performance and stay afterward for a free Q&A with the Ailey dancers in the theater!
