Marvel at their virtuosity and grace, feel their passion, connect to the heart of dance with the iconic Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. This evening of extraordinary dance, expounding on Ailey’s unique mix of contemporary and classic movement, features a variety of works through the company’s 65-year legacy, including the timeless masterpiece Revelations. Using African American spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs, and blues, Revelations fervently explores the places of profound grief and holiest joy. Whether experiencing Ailey again or for the first time, the artists take audiences on a path of discovery, where dance opens a window to the heart and soul, revealing our deepest selves.
