Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is the African-American dance company that popularized modern dance around the world.
Through Thursday, June 18, 2020 ONLINE
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT) is one of New York City’s big three dance companies along with New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theater. One normally hesitates to mix modern dance with ballet, but AAADT is that good.
Alvin Ailey’s “Revelations” (1960) is the company’s signature masterpiece. It’s a reflection of Ailey’s childhood memories of attending Mount Olive Baptist Church near Fort Worth, Texas. The piece eloquently expresses that life is a mix of joy and pain, but always tempered with hope.
