Ailey II, the junior company of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will perform Alvin Ailey's 'Revelations' at Celebrate Brooklyn! on Saturday, August 6. This special evening honors the 50th anniversary of 'Revelations', which is considered one of the timeless masterpieces of American dance.
Since its creation in 1960, Revelations has consistently enraptured audiences all over the world with the perfect blend of reverent grace and spiritual elation. Alvin Ailey’s signature masterpiece pays homage to and reflects the cultural heritage of the African-American, what Ailey thought of as one of America’s richest treasures—“sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful.”
