ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER

February 24, 25 @ 2 p.m.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, renowned for celebrating the human spirit through the African-American cultural experience and the American modern dance tradition, returns by popular demand to Miami for the 10th consecutive year. Led by Artistic Director Robert Battle and featuring Company star Jamar Roberts, both Miami natives, Ailey’s extraordinary dancers will move audiences with exciting premieres including Roberts’ first work for the Company – Members Don’t Get Weary – an abstract look at what it means to have the blues, set to music by John Coltrane. Alvin Ailey’s signature masterpiece Revelations – an American classic acclaimed as a must-see – will provide the inspiring finale at each of the five performances. Ailey’s 2018 Miami visit is the only South Florida engagement on a 21-city coast-to-coast North American Tour.
Tickets to all of these performances are available to Arsht Center Culturist members beginning August 21 and to the general public beginning September 9. Tickets may be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center Box Office by calling (305) 949-6722, or online at www.arshtcenter.org.
