Now, those who haven't had the chance to enjoy Alvin Ailey live can witness the dance company in action for a more affordable price. “It’s reaching an even broader audience,” Alvin Ailey dancer Jamar Roberts said. “This company thrives on its history and legacy, and the only way for it to continue is for it to reach out to younger audiences … there’s something about seeing it that close and that big that really feels like watching a performance at a theater.”
