Continuing a tradition that dates to the late 1960s, the 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 ensembles’ values: artistic excellence, innovation, and profound cultural relevance.
Recent works by innovators like Rennie Harris and Jamar Roberts continue the legacy of Ailey pieces like Revelations, telling powerful stories through dance. Specific program details for this engagement will be announced later in the season.
