“Watching Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater can change your life. If that sounds like a slogan, it’s truth in advertising” (The New York Times). For over 60 years, Ailey has been “doing what few major dance organizations do: It is keeping pace with the times, and the conversation” (The Washington Post). The ground-breaking, forward-thinking company returns to Chicago as a Visiting Resident Company with programs of new and classic works, each one concluding with founder Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations, the “Ailey gift that somehow keeps on giving” (The New York Times).
