Tonight: Alvin Ailey Performance to be Screened at Select Movie Theaters

With A Ballerina’s Tale and Paul Taylor: Creative Domain in theaters, dance-on-film isn’t new to our movie screens, but it is a fantastic way to get up-close-and-personal with this creative art form.  Today, Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance presents the second in its four-part series.  The one-day-only screenings feature some of the most extraordinary dance companies in the country. This time: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

The repertoire includes Wayne McGregor’s Chroma, Ronald K. Brown’s Grace, Robert Battle’s Takademe and Alvin Ailey’s iconic Revelations.  While I was lucky enough to see the live version of the performance at Lincoln Center, the screening offers some special features that made me even more excited to see it a second time – behind-the-scenes clips and interviews.

The series, in partnership with Fathom Events, is only being shown at select cinemas nationwide tonight at 7pm.  This edition was preceded by a San Francisco Ballet screening and will be followed by Ballet Hispanico (Nov. 12) and New York City Ballet (Dec. 5 & 10).

Stay tuned for a full review of this performance later in the week.
