Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater brings its 60th anniversary tour to the Modell Lyric (140 W. Mt Royal Ave., Baltimore) on April 23-24 at 7:30 p.m. 

The dance troupe began during a New York City performance in March 1958 with a group of African-American dancers led by Ailey. Since that performance, Alvin Ailey has brought together the African-American cultural experience with American modern dance in performances for an estimated 25 million people in the United States and around the world. The performance on April 23 will include “Lazarus Act 1,” “Lazarus Act 2” and “Revelations.” For the April 24 show, the company will perform “Members Don’t Get Weary,” “The Call,” “Juba” and an encore performance of “Revelations.” Tickets range from $36-71.
