Khaleej Times - City Times - - BUZZ AROUND TOWN -

WE ARE EX­CITED about this! One of the world’s most ac­com­plished dance com­pa­nies, the Alvin Ai­ley Amer­i­can Dance The­ater, will be mak­ing its de­but in the UAE on the Dubai Opera stage this Oc­to­ber.

Just so you can have a lit­tle bit of back­ground, the New York City based dance com­pany, founded in 1958 by Alvin Ai­ley, is renowned for rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing mod­ern dance. Con­sid­ered a pi­o­neer in es­tab­lish­ing a multi-racial com­pany, the dance com­pany uses the African-Amer­i­can cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence and the Amer­i­can mod­ern dance tra­di­tion in a univer­sal cel­e­bra­tion of the hu­man spirit. They have per­formed to an es­ti­mated 25 mil­lion peo­ple in 71 coun­tries and 6 con­ti­nents - wow! You def­i­nitely can’t miss it!

The Alvin Ai­ley Amer­i­can Dance The­ater will per­form 5 spec­tac­u­lar per­for­mances from Oc­to­ber 4-6 at Dubai Opera.

They will be per­form­ing two di­verse pro­grammes of ex­tra­or­di­nary bal­lets at Dubai Opera, in­clud­ing Rev­e­la­tions, the must-see Amer­i­can mas­ter­piece Alvin Ai­ley cre­ated in 1960 that has been ex­pe­ri­enced by more au­di­ences around the world than any other work of mod­ern dance. Tick­ets will be priced from Dhs250 and are now on sale. www.dubai­opera.com
