Details

After a 20-year absence from Dallas, the incredible Alvin Ailey® American Dance Theater returns to Dallas!

In 1958, Alvin Ailey led a group of young African-American dancers in an event that forever changed the perception of American dance. Today, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater continues its reign as an American “Cultural Ambassador to the World”—having performed live for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, 71 countries, and six continents.

The gifted and gorgeous Ailey dancers infuse energy and emotion to classics and new works alike. Now guided by the vision of artistic director Robert Battle, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater remains the nation’s leading modern dance company. That’s why TITAS believes the stunning Winspear Opera House is the most appropriate place to welcome Ailey back for their first Dallas performance since 1993.
