"Alvin Ailey's story is one of the most inspirational in the history of American performing arts, and his genius forever changed the perception of American dance. For half a century, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has served as this country's dance ambassador, bringing African-American cultural expression and the American modern dance tradition to the world's stages. The legacy continues with the extraordinary artistry of the company's dancers, whose splendid technique and inimitable style, hallmarks of the Ailey tradition, continue to dazzle audiences around the globe."
