Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
June 13 – 17, 2018
Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, beloved as one of the world’s most popular dance companies, will present a seven-performance engagement at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater June 13 – 17, 2018, 60 years after the Company’s founding.  Led by Artistic Director Robert Battle, Ailey’s acclaimed dancers will perform a diverse repertory by eight choreographers featuring the world premiere of Jessica Lang’s En, her Company choreographic debut.  In addition to EN, the Celebrate Women program celebrates the work of groundbreaking female choreographers Judith Jamison (A Case of You) and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar (Shelter).  The Ailey, Then & Now program highlights the work of visionary choreographers central to the Ailey repertory: Talley Beatty’s Stack-Up, performed during his centennial, and Robert Battle’s Mass and In/Side. Musical Icons features works set to music by legendary artists:  Jamar Roberts’ Members Don’t Get Weary (music by John Coltrane), Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section (music by David Byrne), and Robert Battle’s Ella (music by Ella Fitzgerald). Each program closes with an uplifting finale of Revelations, Alvin Ailey’s must-see masterpiece.  The Ailey Spirit Gala benefit performance on Thursday, June 14, features the world-renowned Ailey dancers, and appearances by the rising stars of Ailey II, gifted dancers from The Ailey School, and talented students from AileyCamp, followed by a soirée on the promenade. Performance tickets starting at $29 are on sale and can be purchased at the David H. Koch Box Office, by phone at 212-496-0600, or online at alvinailey.org/LC. Student tickets may be available on the day of the performance for $16 at the box office with a valid student ID (one per student – subject to availability).  On Saturday, June 16, bring the whole family to enjoy the matinee and stay afterward for a free Q&A with the Ailey dancers in the theater.
