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.

Technical Remarks:

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.
