“The irresistible dancers of Ailey are back”
The New Yorker

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dazzles with technical brilliance and passionate energy, bringing audiences to their feet at every performance. The repertory chosen by Artistic Director Robert Battle for this season puts audiences back in touch with some of the richest, deepest works Alvin Ailey ever choreographed; shows off the radiance of the dancers in pieces by the great Ailey contemporaries Twyla Tharp and Paul Taylor; and introduces everyone to thrilling new works by Kyle Abraham and Jamar Roberts that find reservoirs of love and resilience in our complicated lives and times. Join Ailey for a season overflowing with the joy of eclectic, surprising, and moving connections — between eras, between dancemakers, and between people.

Casting and programming subject to change.
