Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, "one of the best known companies in the world" (The Associated Press) that "never fails to inspire and delight" (Chicago Tonight), returns to its Chicago home of more than 50 years as a Visiting Resident Company. Presenting premieres, new productions, timeless classics, and audience favorites, the "extraordinary Ailey dancers" (Chicago Tribune) are known for their incredible artistry and mastery of modern, ballet, hip-hop, and a variety of dance techniques. "If you haven't seen a performance by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in a while, you might forget just how accomplished the company's dancers are. You know they can do anything, but the visible evidence can leave you reeling" (The New Yorker).
