The Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, the country's preeminent modern dance troupe, returns to Charlotte to celebrate the African-American experience through exquisite technique and passionate artistry. The late Alvin Ailey, considered one of the best modern dance choreographers, is still very much alive in the performances of the thirty-member troupe now run by Judith Jamison. The touring production features a variety of dances backed by music ranging from classical to Stevie Wonder, and Ailey's prized centerpiece, Revelations, will be performed.
The Alvin Ailey Dance Theater has performed in more than seventy countries since its found in 1958. - Courtesy of the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater
