In the mid-20th century Alvin Ailey and his American Dance Theatre brought the level of concert dance to a dazzling new height. His performances have continued to delight and inspire audiences for over 50 years. Come and enjoy some of the finest dancing the world has known. Our film viewing will be framed by two different performances of Ailey's signature work, Revelations, and will also include a recent documentary on his company as well as works by several other significant African American choreographers. Class inquiry and discussion will be encouraged.
