Book DescriptionOver the course of 45 years, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has evolved from a small group of young 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 and both certificate and B.F.A. programs; and community outreach programs. Ailey Spirit pauses to reflect on the company's incredible journey as it nears its mid-century mark. A breathtaking collection of photographs from the best dance photographers, along with behind-the-scenes and candid shots, illustrate every aspect of the company's history: the dancers and choreographers; the travels and challenges; even the creation of a new ballet. The text, by former dancer and dance historian Robert Tracy, draws on previously unpublished interviews with more than 50 key individuals. AUTHOR BIO:...
