This chapter examines developments in the career of Alvin Ailey during the 1970s. Ailey's choreographic output slowed considerably after the Ellington festival and he made no new dances for his company or any other for two years. Despite this, Ailey' enterprise continued to expand and his Alvin Ailey Dance Theater continued to tour extensively and represent the US as an effective cultural ambassador on overseas tour including in Japan and the Philippines in 1977. A book celebrating the two-year accomplishments of his company, titled The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, was published with text by Joseph H. Mazo and photographs by Susan Cook.
