The Revelations workshops give dancers a chance to learn the movement of the most acclaimed choreographic work in modern dance, taught by leading dancers from Alvin AileyAmerican Dance Theater's 55 year history. Each class in this series begins with a Horton warm-up followed by an in-depth study of movements from Revelations. In addition to seeing how the Horton technique is an integral part of this seminal work, participants will learn the history of Ailey's signature work and how Mr. Ailey shared his life stories through dance. Live accompanists and Revelations' music will also be an essential part of the workshop.



The workshops will be taught by current Company member, Hope Boykin (Dec. 16th); a former leading dancer for over 14 years Linda Denise Fisher-Harrell (Dec. 30th); and Sylvia Waters (Jan. 5th), Ailey II founding Artistic Director, and seasoned Ailey historian who now leads The Ailey Legacy College Residency. Ailey enthusiasts are also encouraged to ring in 2014 with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at New York City Center when Linda Denise Fisher-Harrell and other former Company members Guillermo Asca, Renee Robinson, Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish,Dudley Williams and Donna Wood Sanders join the current members of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for an exceptional New Year's Eve performance of the always inspiring Revelations.
