Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT) was borne from a now-fabled performance that took place on March 30, 1958, in which Alvin Ailey and a group of young, black, modern dancers performed at the 92nd Street Young Men's Hebrew Association in New York City. The Company has since earned a reputation as one of America's most acclaimed international, cultural ambassadors.
The site is very informative about the group and includes a video clip, the tour schedule, the educational outreach programs, and several biographies of key people in the Company such as Alvin Ailey, Judith Jamison, and Masazumi Chaya.
Technical Requirements: You will need QuickTime or some other application installed on your computer if you wish to view the video clip of the dance company. The video clip is in .avi format. The QuickTime on my Mac easily converted the file, but it does take a few minutes to download.
This site is information about the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The biographies of Alvin Ailey and Judith Jamison are good and are one of the main reasons I direct my students to this site. Many have never heard or seen this dance company so the site offers a thoughtful introduction. The Company also does arts education outreach.
There is a video clip in .avi format of the dance company available for viewing. My Mac converted it to QuickTime with no problem, but it did take over five minutes to download.
