The annual visit to Boston by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has long been one of the city’s celebrated seasonal traditions. The stunningly gifted and gorgeous Ailey dancers bring fire and passion to programs of classics and exciting new works alike.

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

“To see [Ailey’s] magic work on a capacity crowd – and by magic, I mean the galvanizing energy of its dancers – is usually the best part of the show.” – The Washington Post
