Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance forever changed the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people in theaters spread across six continents and was designated “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world” by Congress. This year, the troupe leaps into new works by renowned choreographers Paul Taylor, Ronald K. Brown, Rennie Harris and artistic director Robert Battle, in addition to Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations. Experience this legendary company in person as it returns to Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Theatre, where it has built a legacy of ground-breaking dance works for 46 years.Buy Tickets
