It was my honor to photograph dancers of the world famous Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre. This was a dream shoot for me!
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents as well as millions more through television broadcasts.
