Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Event Description

“(Artistic Director Robert Battle) has already put his stamp on the company, having essentially taken it into the 21st century,” says the Chicago Tribune.  Wheeldon.  Dove.  Naharin.  McGregor.  And of course – Ailey himself. Since Battle took over the company in 2011, these are just a few of the choreographers Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has presented during their annual residency on our historic stage. The Auditorium Theatre has been Ailey’s Chicago home for over 46 years, and we are proud to present America’s Cultural Ambassador to the World.
