The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater family returns to New York City. Performances will take place at The Joan Weill Center, located at 405 West 55th Street (9th Avenue). December 4 – January 5. Tickets start at $25.

The American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance.
