It’s clear why this iconic American dance powerhouse “has created a unique and enduring bond with its audiences” (Chicago Sun-Times)—the gorgeously graceful dancers, the riveting masterworks that fill the repertoire, the strength of the company’s storytelling as well as its movement, and the traditions that make it one of the best-loved dance companies in the U.S. and around the world. Like a final prayer, every performance closes with Alvin Ailey’s signature work Revelations, called a “masterpiece” by The New York Times and the only modern dance work to have been seen by millions around the world.
