On March 30, 1958, Alvin Ailey led a group of young African-American modern dancers in a now-fabled performance at the 92nd Street Y in New York City that forever changed the perception of American dance.
In 1968, Celebrity Series of Boston first presented the Ailey company in what has become an annual tradition and celebration.
In 2017, the company is back in Boston for three days.
