This chapter examines the non-modern dance choreographed by Alvin Ailey. Though better known as a modern dance choreographer, Ailey created several dance pieces for ballet companies, and in doing so he broke through the conventional distinctions between American modern dance and ballet. Some of his most notable ballet works include Feast of Ashes for the Robert Joffrey Ballet and The River and Sea Change for the American Ballet Theater.
