Dancing Revelations

This chapter examines the concert dance tours of Alvin Ailey's dance company called the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in the US during the 1960s and 1970s. During the 1960s, the company was very busy touring various parts of the US and the company found itself consistently setting attendance milestones. However, during the 1970s, extensive touring wore on the company whose members found little artistic development in strings of one-night performances. Thus, from 1971, two- to three-month tours became commonplace.
