Dance is HUGE in our family – my little ballerina loves performing. Someday she hopes to become either a dance teacher or to be able to show off her talent dancing for a company like the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater that will return to Segerstrom Center for The Arts April 7th through April 10th.
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew started from a performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers grew into a The Ailey company, which has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents.
Segerstrom Center for the Arts welcomes the return of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater with a program of works drawn from the company’s large and captivating repertory. Center audiences join all dance lovers around the world in reveling in the Alvin Ailey spirit, imagination, commitment and energy. It is one of the most celebrated and beloved dance companies in the world.
