If you haven’t seen Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, you haven’t seen dance … [they’re] the most exciting dance company in the world.

— HuffPost

For 65 years, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has showcased the work of diverse choreographers, amplifying a wide range of voices alongside Mr. Ailey’s own. During this milestone anniversary season, City Center’s Principal Dance Company will expand on that tradition, presenting a new ballet by Robert Battle commissioned by City Center, and introducing Amy Hall Garner and Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish to the repertory with world premieres.

New productions of Ronald K. Brown’s Dancing Spirit (2009), Alonzo King’s Following the Subtle Current Upstream (2000), Jamar RobertsOde (2019), and Hans van Manen’s Solo (1997), as well as new versions of Ailey classics spanning the breadth of Mr. Ailey’s rich catalog, will round out the season. On select programs, the thrill of live music will enhance favorite Ailey works including RevelationsNight Creature, and more. In a return to pre-pandemic tradition, the Company will shine for a full five weeks, giving audiences the opportunity to once again celebrate the holidays with Ailey.
