Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Founded in 1958 by dance pioneer Alvin Ailey, the company has become known for its expansive repertory, extensive touring schedule and community outreach efforts, along with its masterful artistry. In the more than 50 years since its founding, the company has grown from a small, mostly black company into a large, multi-racial institution, fulfilling Ailey’s dream to “touch everyone’s heart through dance".
