Suzette Espinosa, VP of Communication at the Adrienne Arsht Center, joined Inside South Florida to shed light on the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's Coast to Coast tour during their stop in Miami, following an acclaimed 65th-anniversary season launch in New York City.

The renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater embarked on a tour spanning cities like Atlanta, Washington, DC, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and Miami, as part of the celebration of Black Heritage Month.

Espinosa expressed excitement about hosting the company at the Arsht Center, describing their performances as a captivating blend of athleticism, beauty, and emotion set to exceptional music. The tour serves as a testament to the company's role as cultural ambassadors, resonating globally.

Highlighting the local ties of the dance company, Espinosa pointed out that the former artistic director, Robert Battle, hails from Liberty City, Miami. Additionally, principal dancer Jamar Roberts, a local talent, will showcase his choreography during the performance.
