About this event
For its annual Kennedy Center engagement, the beloved company presents Ailey classics and new works, including Ailey’s signature Revelations.
Celebrating over 60 years of unparalleled artistry, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has always been a treasured part of the Kennedy Center experience since we opened our doors in 1971. This “spiritually riveting” (DC Metro Theater Arts) company never fails to remind us of the power of dance to bring us together. With mixed repertory programs of signature Ailey classics and new works from the most dynamic choreographers of today, audiences will experience the soul-stirring masterpiece, Revelations—the most-seen modern dance piece in the world—at the end of each performance. It’s clear why the legendary company’s irresistible dancers dazzle with their trademark technical brilliance and passionate energy and bring audiences to their feet every night.
