About Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 23 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents -- as well as millions more through television broadcasts. In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world” that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage. When Mr. Ailey began creating dances, he drew upon his "blood memories" of Texas, the blues, spirituals, and gospel as inspiration, which resulted in the creation of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, Revelations. Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime, Mr. Ailey maintained that his company was not exclusively a repository for his own work. Today, the Company continues Mr. Ailey's mission by presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones. In all, more than 200 works by over 80 choreographers have been part of the Ailey company’s repertory. Before his untimely death in 1989, Alvin Ailey named Judith Jamison as his successor, and over the next 21 years, she brought the Company to unprecedented success. Ms. Jamison, in turn, personally selected Robert Battle to succeed her in 2011. In announcing his appointment as Artistic Director, she stated, “Combining an intimate knowledge of the Ailey company with an independent perspective, Robert Battle is without question the creative force of the future.”

    Brava to Ms. La Toya Dixon for coming through with a ticket and wonderful seating at The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, this evening--thank you. Also, thanks to Ms. Robin T. for her diligence to make sure I got a ticket. Kudos ladies. The performances were exceptional; a celebrations of nostalgia, pride and artistic nuance.

    NOTICE: For a limited time, Auditorium Theatre has reactivated the link for ticket purchases. Unfortunately, the 50% discount has expired BUT...if you are still interested in attending, you can purchase tickets with a 10% discount and no TicketMaster fees (which still is about a $15-$20 savings).

    Hey all! The programming has just been announced for the Wednesday, March 13,[masked]:30 PM performance of Alvin Ailey. It will be Grace, Minus 16 and Revelations. Grace: http://www.alvinailey.org/about/company/alvin-ailey-american-dance-theater/repertory/grace

    Minus 16: http://www.alvinailey.org/minus-16

    Please note that this work is unique in the Ailey repertory for removing the barrier between performers and spectators, and inviting members of the audience onstage to become part of the dance. Last year, one of my group members were pulled on stage when you see them come in the audience and they select you, get ready to jam and represent CBPSN on stage! :) Revelations: http://www.alvinailey.org/about/company/alvin-ailey-american-dance-theater/repertory/revelations#node-161?slide=1

    I look forward to seeing each of you at the performance.

    There was a technical glitch as the box office added tickets and may have been working in CBPSN's account when some of you attempted to purchase tickets within the hour. Link is now working again: https://oss.ticketmaster.com/html/go.htmI?l=EN&t=aud&o=5448688&g=106

    Tried to purchase & I received a sold out notice. Is that correct?

    January 18, 2013

    • Pier R.

      Hi Michelle, I'm new and I received the same notification and then when I went to purchase they were sold out also. I then came back and saw this is an old post from December but there must be some kind of error that its auto-populating the message as if tickets are still available when in fact they are not. I posted a question and asked the host if there were any more group tickets going to be made available but I didn't receive a response so I'm assuming this is old and all tickets are gone.

    FYI, I've read the comments and I see there was a problem with the link to purchase tickets for Alvin Ailey. I was getting the same error message that tickets were sold out when I tried on Monday, but it looks like the link has been fixed! Just purchased my ticket :) I'm not an organizer for this event, so I don't know how many tickets are left - the last update was 30 remaining tickets - but judging by the RSVP list, this will be a popular event, so you might want to click the link in the event description and get your ticket before the CBPSN section is sold out!!! :)

    January 23, 2013

  • La Toya D.

    Hey all! Please be sure to note that you paid for your tickets by your name. Thanks. :)

    Hello all, Not sure why this event was cancelled. since Robin T. is still listed as an EO and a member of CBPSN. (unless she stepped completely down and out of the group) and since this was listed on our team calendar previously, I think we should still include this event on our team calendar as a meetup everyone should enjoy. We already have folks on the Leadership Team who combine their other meetup groups with ours from time to time. We have no problem with that.

    January 22, 2013

  • La Toya D.

    The link is acting up right now. There is still 30 tickets available for purchase. I have requested that the link be fixed for it to be available for ticket purchases on Monday. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

    There should be thirty tickets available for purchase as the link expires in one week. If you have not purchased your ticket and are still having complications, please email me directly at latoya_dixon@ yahoo.com and I will inform the theatre and take new measures to ensure that you can purchase tickets.
