About

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Robert Battle, Artistic Director
Masazumi Chaya, Associate Artistic Director
 
"An impressive spectrum of works push the company forward while keeping it firmly anchored in its celebrated past"--The New York Times
 
Now more than ever, the world needs the power of dance to bring people together and connect us all by our common humanity. For its 2017 engagement, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater delivered on this promise--exploring everything from apartheid and race relations to celebrating influential musicians like Dizzy Gillespie and Ella Fitzgerald. For its annual Kennedy Center engagement in 2018, the beloved company will continue to push the art form into fascinating new territory, with multiple programs as unique and phenomenal as the Ailey dancers themselves.
 
One thing's for sure: their future couldn't be brighter. "We must continue to grow and speak to the human spirit," says Artistic Director Robert Battle. "The notion that one is only limited by one's own imagination--that anything is possible--is what we represent. The tension between our past, present, and future is what I want to build on." To that end, the company keeps expanding its repertory, with its most recent Kennedy Center performances featuring new works from choreographers as diverse as Mauro Bigonzetti, Hope Boykin, and Kyle Abraham. Signature classics also keep bringing audiences back, including Alvin Ailey's masterpiece of hope and redemption, Revelations.
