Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Robert Battle, artistic director
Matthew Rushing, associate artistic director

​​“Eavesdrop pre-curtain at Bay Area dance shows and you’ll hear audience members sharing their top dance memories. High on almost everyone’s list? Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at UC Berkeley” (San Francisco Chronicle). Continuing a tradition that dates to the late 1960s, the breathtaking Ailey dancers return for the company’s annual campus residency. Robert Battle, who recently celebrated 10 years as artistic director, has doubled down during his tenure on the values that make this ensemble a crown jewel among American companies: artistic excellence, daring innovation, and profound cultural relevance. Recent works by innovators like Rennie Harris and Jamar Roberts honor and continue the legacy of timeless Ailey masterpieces like Revelations, telling powerful and life-affirming stories through stunning dance.

The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater program will be announced late December 2022.
