A company of dancers boasting a “nonchalant virtuosity” that “routinely sends its audience into the rapture zone” (The Washington Post). Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s (AAADT) diverse, dynamic and timeless repertory evokes a broad range of human emotion and experience: you don’t just see an Ailey performance — you feel it. Is it any wonder that after six decades AAADT is “synonymous with contemporary American dance” (The Toronto Star)? As part of their 60th Anniversary Tour, the iconic company makes their long anticipated return to Ovations in a program that promises to be “change-your-life good” (The Today Show).
“The texture of their dancing is powerful and juicy, brilliant in speed and marvelous in slowness. You feel as if you’ve always known them.”
