A national treasure on its way to Springfield

We are so excited to present Alvin Aliley American Dance Theatre coming up this Sunday, April 27 at 7 p.m.  It has been twenty years since this company appeared on the Sangamon Auditorium stage: much too long!
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre
Dance lovers along with the un-inclined will both inspired by the works of the Alvin Ailey company, which are accessible and, yes, ENJOYABLE to all kinds of audience members.  We particularly love this video from our friends at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, made up of DUDES touting the value of seeing this company live on stage:

The DUDES even talk a little about their responses to "Revelations," which will close our concert on Sunday. For tickets, visit our website, or call us at 217.206.6160.

“Every American owes it to him or herself to see the Ailey [company] perform Revelations. It is an American phenomenon. I’ve probably seen it countless times and every time it’s magical and spiritual and hopeful - everything that we want ourselves to be and hope that our country will be.”  - Oprah Winfrey on Entertainment Tonight, 12/4/08
