About Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Based in New York City, Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater is a dance company of approximately 30 world-class dancers that focuses on modern styles. Originally founded as one of the world's only dance troupes featuring all-black dancers, in 1962 founder Alvin Ailey eventually made the company open to dancers of all backgrounds in a statement on the power of races coming together to create something beautiful at a time when race-based tensions were at an all-time high. Since then, the AAADT has gone on to tour on six continents, perform in 48 of the 50 United States, and completed residencies in faraway lands where their art transcends barriers of language and culture. The company also opened a dance school in Manhattan where young dancers can receive guidance and direction from the best of the best. The company also still tours rigorously to this day, and can be seen all over the country bringing their rich culture and unparalleled talent to stages in a wide range of cities. Don't miss your chance to buy tickets to see one of America's most iconic and historically significant dance troupes when they come to your city.
