Renowned for its soul-stirring high energy performances, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of America's greatest companies. Taking popular music, gospel and jazz and mixing the classical vocabulary of ballet with a contemporary style, the Company of 30 dancers radiate a slick and sassy energy that is purely infectious. Firebird
(1964) - Maurice Bejartâs Firebird jettisons Stravinskyâs fairytale for a modern all-male interpretation that recasts the Firebird as a tough revolutionary Phoenix. The Golden Section
(1981) - Twyla Tharpâs supersonic piece is set to a fantastic score by David Byrne (ex-Talking Heads). A glittering display of daredevil dance: with breathtaking leaps, finely-honed partnering and explosive joy throughout. Revelations
(1960) - The signature piece of Ailvin Ailey is an American classic, performed to rapt audiences across the world since the 1960s. Buoyed by traditional spirituals from the American South, Revelations only improves with age.Choreographer Alvin Ailey. Producer Dance Consortium.
