The choreography demonstrates Aileys admiration for classical ballet, but retains the modern and jazz influences found in all his work. The River shows...!

The name Alvin Ailey is synonymous with modern dance. In 1958, when Ailey founded his company, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, it was an instant sensation internationally - thanks in large part to his masterpiece, Revelations, which showcased the agony and triumph of the African-American experience to a global audience.
