A Houston favorite, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns with a program that will include its signature work, Revelations. Known internationally as one of the most acclaimed ambassadors of American culture, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater promotes dance as a medium for honoring the past, celebrating the present and fearlessly reaching into the future by exploring black cultural expression.

The company grew from a 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 the perception of American dance.
