Late American dancer and choreographer Alvin Ailey popularized modern dance around the world, and the dance company he founded in 1958 is still setting the gold standard for masterfully choreographed and executed routines. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will perform two shows this weekend in Mesa. Both feature "Revelations," a famous work infused with spirituals, song-sermons, gospel and blues that Ailey based on his own experience as an African-American growing up in the rural South.
