      The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from the now fabled performance in March 1958, at the 92nd Street Young Men's Hebrew Association in New York. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states and in 71 countries on six continents, including two historic residencies in South Africa. In 2008, the U.S. Congress designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world,”, promoting the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage.

      Before his untimely death in 1989, Alvin Ailey asked Judith Jamison to become Artistic Director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Remaining committed to furthering Alvin Ailey’s legacy, she has brought the Company to unprecedented success. In July 2011, Ms. Jamison will pass her mantle to Artistic Director Designate Robert Battle. In announcing Mr. Battle’s appointment, Ms. Jamison stated, “Combining an intimate knowledge of the Ailey company with an independent perspective, he is without question the creative force of the future.”
