Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of the world’s premier modern dance companies. Under the direction of Robert Battle, the company continues to make work that nurtures a new generation of choreographers steeped in the African-American experience while performing works from around the world. From seminal repertoire like Alvin Ailey's Revelations and Night Creatures, to new material that engages with vital social movements and other choreographic traditions, the company creates dances with the power to transform.
