While the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is not from Atlanta, and therefore not necessarily a “thing to do in Atlanta,” the Fabulous Fox Theatre is and so they’ve made the list. Also, they are here regularly – at least once a year – so they are a perennial favorite of dance lovers in the city.
If you’re a fan of “So You Think You Can Dance” on FOX, chances are you’ve seen them perform as special guests each season. If you’re a fan of dance, you totally know who they are. They combine the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience with American modern dance to create a dance experience unlike any other. Basically, even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of dance you will love what you see! It’s strong, sexy, superb!
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is appearing at The Fox Theatre through Sunday, February 21, with various show times throughout the weekend:
Friday, February 19 – 8 PM
Saturday, February 20 – 2 PM, 8 PM
Sunday, February 21 – 3 PM
A SPECIAL DISCOUNT is available for families for the Coca-Cola family matinee at 2 PM on Saturday, February 20. If you buy one ticket, you can get one at 50% off. Thanks to Atlanta on the Cheap (follow @ATLCheap on Twitter) for this tip – you can get more details about the discount by visiting their site.
PSSST: Don’t be late! Late arrivals will not be seated until Intermission. In other words, you miss half the show!
