More Than Dance : Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
The 50th anniversary of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater marks a great celebration for the dance company, who has now performed for over 21 million people worldwide since its conception.
Moreover the dance company's desire to promote African American culture and modern dance has won it recognition by a congressional resolution as a American Cultural Ambassador to the World.
At the root of the dance company is faith in God. Founder Alvin Ailey found inspiration through spirtuals and gospels during his upbringing. March 29, 2008
