Alvin Ailey


From their first performance in 1958 at the 92nd Street Y to their current role as international ambassadors, The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is known for its excellence and commitment to African American cultural expression. Now a mainstay in New York City culture, Alvin Ailey has performed for an estimated 21 million people in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents. They also offer a myriad of programs to delight and educate, which proves that dance isn’t reserved for the classically trained anymore.
