The 2015 Alvin Ailey North American Tour, rolled into Atlanta Georgia Valentines weekend. Artistic Director Robert Battle brought the excitement and creativity of modern dance to life . This year’s production hosted over 1,000 guests nightly, and was a sensational, eye popping kaleidoscope of creativity.  The music transcends the global influences of the choreographers and dancers. Each production number ended with a standing ovation by the viewing audience, whom were delighted by every  masterpiece including the appropriate costumes and musical selection.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater was founded in 1958 by the dancer, choreographer and visionary Alvin Ailey. Mr. Ailey established a multi-racial repertory company dedicated to presenting works by a variety of choreographers from the past and present. In 2008, after fifty years of performing around the globe, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world,” one that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage
