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 current pandemic has created several logistical issues that again won't allow the Pacific Islanders' Cultural Association (PICA) to hold a regular Aloha Festival in 2022. In its place, we will be scheduling a Bay Area Aloha Concert on Sunday, August 14, 2022. We are still at the San Mateo County Event Center (home of the San Mateo County Fair) in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area.  Admission cost for the concert is $25 per person.  We anticipate festival parking will be $18 per vehicle and encourage everyone to carpool.

Please save the date and help us spread the word! Mahalo for your continued support!

For safety and comfort, please leave pets at home. 
Event Center policy does not allow them.  Service animals are always welcome.

TIME: 10:00am – 5pm
