Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to Segerstrom Center // #SCFTA

As part of Segerstrom Center’s International Dance Series, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns March 27 – 30 for an exclusive Southern California engagement. Recognized by the U.S. Congress as a vital American “Cultural Ambassador to the World,” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of the most creative and inspiring dance companies in the world. Led by Ailey Artistic Director Robert Battle, this sixth visit to the Center by the Company will feature two programs that include three works never before performed on the West Coast by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater: Chroma, D-Man in the Waters (Part I) and LIFT.

To welcome the return of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the Center and the Company will host Revelations Celebration, a FREE kick-off event on the Arts Plaza beginning at noon on Saturday, March 22. Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to participate and engage directly with Company performers and teaching artists and in other activities as well. Among the many activities planned, acclaimed Ailey teaching artist Nasha Thomas-Schmitt, master teacher and former Ailey principal dancer, will teach the distinctive movements of three of the most well-known pieces from the Company’s cornerstone work, Revelations, including “Rocka My Soul,” “Wade in the Water” and “I’ve ‘Been Buked.” Fans and novices alike are welcome!
