The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre is returning to the ATL in February for an exclusive engagement at the Fabulous Fox Theatre and we have the performance schedules just for you.
The iconic dance troupe are going to make temperatures rise this Valentine’s Day as they take flight beginning 2/14-18. Attendees will get a chance to see Hope Boykin‘s r-Evolution Dream, which is an ode to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section (the featured photo above) and Episodes.
Other nights include Shining Star and Stack-Up, which features the music of Earth, Wind and Fire, CRY, which was made famous by former Artistic Director, Judith Jamison and the testosterone filled—The Hunt. Of course closing out each performance is the generational classic – Revelations.
I will be talking to the company’s Artistic Director Robert Battle within the coming weeks for a future edition of my radio show, UPFRONT!
