"Revelations", the 'Signature Work' of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, celebrates the human spirit and the ability of people to overcome adversity. This suite of dances captures the essence of Ailey's black experience in America and expresses themes of his African-American cultural heritage. The lessons focus on such concepts as reach and withdraw, creating a personal signature dance based on one's name and exploring Langston Hughes poerty to find ways to express concepts and feelings through dance. The universal theme of "the Human Family" is woven throughout.
