“An Evening of Ailey and Jazz” Opening Night Gala Benefit
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
The 2016 Opening Night Gala Benefit performance will be “An Evening of Ailey and Jazz,” featuring Robert Battle’s Ella – a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald preceding the 100th anniversary of her birth – along with a variety of one-night-only performances set to jazz music and Alvin Ailey’s Revelations with live musicians and singers.
Followed by a dinner-dance at the New York Hilton Midtown Grand Ballroom, the benefit raises support for Ailey’s extensive educational and training programs for young people.
