About the Show

The magnificent Ailey company continues its exciting new expansion of repertoire under Artistic Director Robert Battle while celebrating the core works that have made it the world’s leading modern dance company.

“Ailey’s (relatively) new artistic director, has brought in an encouraging amount of good-quality work that is either new, or at least new to the company and its faithful audiences.” —The New York Times

“The company is dancing better than ever.” —The New Yorker
