Over the course of 45 years, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has evolved from a small group of young, African-American dancers traveling the country in a station wagon to what is widely considered the premier modern dance company in the world. Today, the Ailey is also a national cultural institution, comprising two performing companies; an accredited school with classes for children, pre-professional students and dance enthusiasts; and community outreach programs. ‘Ailey Spirit’ pauses to reflect on the company’s incredible journey as it nears its midcentury mark. An eye-opening array of photographs from the best dance photographers illuminates the performances and artistic creations of every decade; the dancers and choreographers; the travels and challenges; and the creation of new work. The insightful text draws on previously unpublished interviews with more than 50 key individuals. ‘Ailey Spirit’ offers readers a vision of the energy that infuses every season; the commitment to artistic excellence and education; and the artists through whom the Ailey legacy continues to evolve in a new century.
