Alvin Ailey


Founded in New York City in 1958, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company has grown to become one of the world’s pre-eminent modern dance organizations. Drawing upon unique forms of African American artistic expression such as jazz, blues and hip-hop, their performances resonate with a unique, and singular energy.

A personal collaboration with Ailey company dancers, apprentices and students, the images seek to capture the unique essence and energy that personify the Ailey legacy.
