Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Detroit Opera

Overview

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.

Today, the Company continues Mr. Ailey's mission by presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones. All programs will include Ailey’s iconic Revelations; the program’s remaining repertoire will be announced at a later date.
