Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater ORG S

 

Alvin Ailey American Dance Company

is moving online.

“Ailey for All” will offer videos of performances starting Monday with its most well-known work, “Revelations.” Full length performances will then stream Thursdays, and clips made by dancers at home will be included in a series called #TheShowMustGoOn.

And for those who want to learn moves while in isolation, the company will have classes on social media in styles from beginner ballet to samba.

The captivating Yamato drummers visit from Nara Prefecture, the cradle of Japanese civilization, with a powerhouse program of traditional taiko drumming. Playing massive drums built from animal skins and ancient tree trunks, the troupe’s youthful and energetic drummers channel the heartbeat and spirit of their homeland.

Yamato’s newest program, Tenmei (the name translates as “destiny”), is brought to life through the performers’ theatrical fire and unparalleled musical discipline and focus. “This is a show of unbridled enthusiasm, much humour and great musical variety” (The Scotsman, UK).

Funding made possible by The Henri and Tomoye Takahashi Charitable Foundation.
