“…pure movement, pure magic…” – The New York Times

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. From its now-fabled beginnings in 1958 at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has grown to become the nation’s dance ambassador.

Bringing African-American cultural expression and the American modern dance tradition to the world’s stages, the Company has performed at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents.

The Alvin Ailey legacy continues with the extraordinary artistry of the company’s beautiful dancers, whose splendid technique and remarkable style, signature characteristics of the Ailey tradition, continue to dazzle audiences around the globe. The Company’s annual visit to Memorial Hall has become an essential part of the Carolina Performing Arts season and a time-honored Chapel Hill tradition.
