Truly great dance can be a window to the heart and soul, revealing our deepest selves. Let the dancers of ALVIN AILEY® AMERICAN DANCE THEATER take you on a path of discovery. They'll show you themselves through their movement and help you see yourself in their stories. This mixed repertory program will feature new and classic works, including the beloved Ailey masterpiece Revelations. Using African American spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues, Revelations fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul. Whether you've seen Ailey before or this is your first time, you're sure to experience something new.
