Night Creature Residencies

In the spring of 2017 Ailey’s Arts In Education & Community Programs launched its newest curriculum initiative: Night Creature: An Imaginative Journey Through Dance, modeled after the Revelations curriculum. This program for elementary-age youth in 3rd through 5th grades is based on the study of Alvin Ailey’s Night Creature, a fusion of Ailey’s buoyant choreography and Duke Ellington’s sparkling music. As a large ensemble work, replete with movements that invoke animals in joyful celebration, is ideally suited for engaging young minds.
