24 Mar

Returning to Seattle as part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT) will perform several works from its classic repertory including Revelations, Ailey’s signature masterpiece that explores African American spirituals, encompassing songs of love, struggle and deliverance. The engagement will also include new works by some of today’s most daring and visionary choreographers.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from the now fabled performance in March 1958, at the 92nd Street Young Men’s Hebrew Association in New York. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African American modern dancers, the performance forever changed the perception of American dance. Today, led by Artistic Director, Judith Jamison, AAADT has gone on to perform for an estimated 21 million people in 48 states and in 71 countries on six continents, including two historic residencies in South Africa. The company has earned a reputation as one of the most acclaimed international ambassadors of American culture, promoting the uniqueness of the African American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance.
