Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Atlanta Ticket Giveaway

Last year was my first time attending an Alvin Ailey show. I’ve heard so many amazing things about Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and I knew I wanted to experience the show with my daughter. We went on a Saturday afternoon and we were mesmerized by the movement and the emotions that welled up inside of us by watching the dancers. It was so inspiring to see an all African American dance theater and share that moment with my child. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is headed back to Atlanta again, just in time for Valentine’s Day, February 14th-18th at the fabulous Fox Theatre!

Alvin Ailey choreographed his signature solo Cry in 1971 as a gift for his dignified mother, Lula Cooper, and created the dance on his stunning muse, Judith Jamison. Mr. Aileydedicated the ballet “to all black women everywhere–especially our mothers.” In this three-part solo the dancer, clad in a white leotard and long ruffled skirt, brings the audience on a journey from bitter sorrow, through brutal hardship, to ecstatic joy. The New York Times called it “probably the closest dance has ever come to a shout – or cry – of pure anger, pain and exultation.”

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will be in Atlanta for one week only, from February 14th – 18th. Tickets can be purchased HERE at foxtheatre.org. If you’re interested in seeing the show with your family, be sure to check out the  family matinee on Saturday, February 17th at 2pm!

The uplifting finale will be Alvin Ailey’s must-see masterpiece Revelations, which been seen by more audiences around the world than any other modern work. Since its creation in 1960, Revelations has inspired generations through its powerful storytelling and soul-stirring spirituals. Springing from Ailey’s childhood memories of growing up in the south and attending services at Mount Olive Baptist Church in Texas, Revelations pays homage to the rich cultural heritage of the African-American and explores the emotional spectrum of the human condition.

    I haven’t seen Ailey in well over 10 years which is sad. I’m long overdue to go to the theater.

    Speaking of the Ailey tour, is anyone seeing them in Charlotte? We found a theater that’s showing them and we’re taking some out of town guests to see Alvin Ailey: https://seatnerds.com/charlotte/the-belk-theater/
