Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Fox Theatre from Feb. 11 – Feb. 15.
And I have two tickets to give to one randomly selected winner!
The tickets will be for the Feb. 11. show at 8 p.m. The evening features Night Creature, After the Rain Pas de Deux, Suspended Women, Takademe and Revelations. For the first time, opening night is designated as Ailey fan night, when all tickets will be offered at $25.
To win tickets:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the subject line write “Ailey Tickets.”
- Enter by midnight, Wednesday, Feb. 4. The winner will be announced later that day.
Additional performances during the five-day run include the Atlanta premiere of ODETTA, a tribute to singer Odetta Holmes once called “the queen of American folk music” by Martin Luther King, Jr. Company premieres will introduce Ailey audiences to ballets by choreographers such as Jacqulyn Buglisi, a former Martha Graham dancer, whose works are being performed by Ailey for the first time.
