Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has dazzled audiences worldwide for over 50 years with unparalleled artistry. As the US Cultural Ambassador to the world, the company brings African-American cultural expression and the modern dance tradition to stages around the globe. AileyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s legacyÃ¢â‚¬â€shaping dancers of extraordinary technique, passion, and inimitable styleÃ¢â‚¬â€continues under the leadership of choreographer Robert Battle, Judith JamisonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hand-picked successor. Called Ã¢â‚¬Å“possibly the most successful modern dance company on the planetÃ¢â‚¬ and Ã¢â‚¬Å“sleek, athletic masters of the universeÃ¢â‚¬ (New York Times), the evening includes AileyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s signature masterpiece, Revelations, which uses African-American spirituals and holy blues to explore the places of deepest grief and utmost joy in the soul.
