“A company whose worldwide popularity is rivaled only by the magnificence of its dancing. Everybody loves Ailey.” -San Francisco Chronicle

“A must-see.” -The Wall Street Journal

With electrifying movement and soulful spirit, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s “sleek, athletic masters of the universe” (The New York Times) make their long-awaited return to Santa Barbara. Under the inspired leadership of new Artistic Director Robert Battle, the ensemble presents two separate programs blending its newest and boldest works with classics including the “divinely timeless, rousing and radiant” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) masterpiece Revelations. Don’t miss the group The New York Times calls “possibly the most successful modern dance company on the planet” – and Congress designated America’s cultural ambassadors to the world. Tickets for their 2009 appearance sold out quickly!
