About Alvin Ailey Dance Theater

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African American modern dancers. That performance changed forever the perception of American dance.

The Ailey company has gone on to perform. For an estimated 25 million people. At theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents.

As well as millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms.

In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution. Designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world”.

 That celebrates the uniqueness of the African American cultural experience. And the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage.

When Mr. Ailey began creating dances. He drew upon his “blood memories” of Texas. The blues, spirituals, and gospel as inspiration.

Which resulted in the creation. Of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, Revelations.

Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime. Mr. Ailey maintained that his company was not only a repository for his own work.

Today, the Company continues Mr. Ailey’s mission. By presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones.

In all, more than 235 works by over 90 choreographers have been part of the Ailey company’s repertory.

For over 60 years, Ailey has been “doing what few major dance organizations do. It is keeping pace with the times, and the conversation” (The Washington Post).

  1. I can’t afford to miss the dance in this article. I like how you have explained the history of the theater and invited people to watch the Alvin Ailey dance. Alvin Ailey dance lovers like me will be so pleased when they see how this article has appreciated what they love. Don’t miss out on this and don’t say you were not told.

  2. Hmmm…interesting. I’m a fan of ballet but I never heard about an African-American dance company. It’s dope! Unfortunately, I live in France so I won’t be able to attend as I don’t know if I’m able to travel now. However, I keep the name of this company in mind and I will come to see them when I am a millionaire!

    1. It must be awesome living in France! Alvin Ailey Dancers are awesome! Glad I’ve introduced you to a piece of African-American history. Thanks for leaving a comment!

  3. This show looks amazing! I was watching the youtube video you posted and was transported. The dancers are so graceful, expressive, and moving. I wish I was in the Chicago area so I could go see them. Do you know if they are taking their show on the road to the New York area perhaps? Thanks for sharing!
