Alvin Ailey Dance Theater Comes to Mesa Arts Center, 3/24 & 25
One of the leading contemporary dance troupes in America, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater brings its breathtaking athleticism and technique to the Mesa Arts Center on March 24th and 25th.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 71 countries on 6 continents, promoting the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance tradition. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, recognized by U.S. Congressional resolution as a vital American “Cultural Ambassador to the World,” grew from a now-fabled March 1958 performance in New York that changed forever the perception of American dance. Founded by Alvin Ailey, and guided by Judith Jamison beginning in 1989, the Company is now led by Robert Battle, whom Judith Jamison chose to succeed her on July 1, 2011.
