You don't just see an Ailey performance, you feel it. This December, engage your emotions as the world's most popular dance company returns with five weeks of premieres, new productions, and returning favorites.

The Dec 16th performance will have an all new program, including two world premieres. Highlights include:

- Victoria (World Premiere) by Gustavo Ramirez Sansano
Renowned for an audacious, athletic style, Sansano has named his premiere – Spanish for "victory" – as a tribute to the triumph of good over evil. The large ensemble work is set to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, rewritten by award-winning composer Michael Gordon.

- Members Don’t Get Weary (World Premiere) by Jamar Roberts
In his first work for the Company – using music by jazz legend John Coltrane – the veteran Company member and recent “Bessie” Award winner inspires audiences to transcend our current social landscape by dancing away the blues.

- Stack-Up (New Production) by Talley Beatty
A throbbing Protected content soundtrack that includes Grover Washington Jr. and Earth, Wind & Fire drives the sizzling pyrotechnics of this work set against an urban backdrop on “a hot summer night when passions are strong and tempers are fierce. The choreography is spectacular.” (New York Times).
