“Watching Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater can change your life. If that sounds like a slogan, it’s truth in advertising.”—The New York Times
Repertory programs to include Revelations

Truly great dance can be a window into the heart and soul, revealing our deepest selves. Let Ailey take you on a path of discovery. We’ll show you ourselves through our movement and help you see yourself in our stories.

Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Ounce of Faith is an exuberant expression of what’s possible when a young person is encouraged to dream. Jamar Roberts’ Ode reflects on the beauty and fragility of life in a time of growing gun violence. And Greenwood, a new commission from Donald Byrd, shines a light on the 1921 attack by a white mob that destroyed an affluent black neighborhood in Tulsa, OK.

Company premieres and new productions round out the season, along with returning audience favorites including Mr. Ailey’s timeless classic Revelations.
