Tickets starting at $25 go on sale Monday, April 1st. “It is exciting to share the artistry of 30 world-class dancers and a variety of renowned choreographic voices in a second New York season, extending Ailey’s history of performances at Lincoln Center and on premier dance stages,” said Robert Battle. “I’m also looking forward to seeing Ronald K. Brown’s unique dance storytelling come to life through the Ailey dancers, a com
bination that is always expressive, inspiring and magical.”
