Description:

Organization Founded in 1958 by the pioneering dancer, choreographer, and cultural leader Alvin Ailey, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT) has grown to become one of the world’s premier dance companies and the largest modern dance company in the country. AAADT is supported by the nonprofit Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation (Foundation), whose mission is to further the vision of Alvin Ailey by building an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and education, and community programs for all people, using the beauty and humanity of the African-American heritage and other cultures to unite people of all races, ages, and backgrounds. The Foundation also supports The Ailey School, Ailey Arts In Education & Community Programs, Ailey Extension, and Ailey II. AAADT has performed in 71 countries for more than 25 million people at venues across the globe, as well as tens of millions more people via television appearances. The company’s repertory includes more than 250 works by more than 100 choreographers. In 2008 AAADT it was hailed as a “vital American cultural ambassador to the world” by the United States Senate. Before Alvin Ailey’s death in 1989, legendary dancer Judith Jamison was named as his successor. She led the company for 21 years before renowned choreographer and dancer Robert Battle became Artistic Director in 2011. AAADT is based in midtown Manhattan at The Joan Weill Center for Dance, the largest complex dedicated solely to dance in the city, which includes 16 studios, two classrooms, and a 270-seat theater. Co-led by Directors Tracy Inman and Melanie Person, The Ailey School offers a broad range of dance training to thousands of students ages three to 25 annually, as well as a bachelor of fine arts degree in dance in association with Fordham University. Ailey Arts In Education & Community Programs provide thousands of young people from diverse backgrounds with the chance to explore their creative potential through a range of programs, including workshops, classes, and discounted or free tickets to performances. Founded in 2005, Ailey Extension offers dance and fitness classes open to the public in a variety of techniques, including ballet, West African, Horton, and Zumba. Ailey II was founded in 1974 and is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers. Originally known as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, the company was led by esteemed dancer Sylvia Waters from its inception to 2011 and by Troy Powell from 2012 to 2020. Ailey II is comprised of 12 promising young dancers who are selected from within The Ailey School through an audition process led by the Artistic Director, Ailey II in collaboration with The Ailey School Co-Directors and AAADT’s artistic team. These dancers spend two years with the company before joining major national and international dance companies, as well as appearing on Broadway, television, and in films. Ailey II dancers experience an extensive and rigorous touring schedule to more than 30 cities throughout the United States and abroad each year. The dancers gain preparation for careers as professional dancers through advanced technical training, individualized mentorship, broad performance experience, and opportunities to work directly with a broad range of choreographers. Each season runs from July to June of the following year. In addition to restaging existing works, such as the beloved Revelations by Alvin Ailey, the company commissions two to four new works by a diverse range of emerging choreographers. Ailey II holds a one- to two-week-long season in New York City each spring, where its home audience can enjoy the company’s performances. Dancers also take part in extensive community engagement activities at public schools, colleges, and in underserved communities. Due to COVID-19, all of Ailey II’s scheduled performances through June 2021 have been put on hiatus. The Ailey II dancers are anticipated to return in late-2021. The Foundation is governed by a 25-member board of trustees, led by Chairman Daria L. Wallach and President Anthony S. Kendall. Artistic Director Robert Battle and Executive Director Bennett Rink jointly oversee an administrative and artistic team of 63 employees, including 28 AAADT dancers, 19 office and crew members, and three artistic personnel, as well as 67 other full- and part-time staff members and 200 full- and part-time faculty members.

Executive Director

Styles: Ballet

Description:

Organization Atlanta Ballet is one of the premier and oldest dance companies in America and the official state ballet of Georgia. Established in 1929 by dance visionary Dorothy Moses Alexander, Atlanta Ballet is currently led by Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin. A Bolshoi trained former principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet, Nedvigin was recruited to Atlanta Ballet in 2016 to elevate the artistic excellence and stature of the professional Company. Atlanta Ballet performs at the 2,750-seat Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, accompanied by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra. Atlanta Ballet’s mission is to enrich its community by sharing the power and joy of dance at the highest caliber of excellence in its presentations, education initiatives, and community engagement activities. Atlanta Ballet’s five-year strategic plan prioritizes a balanced repertoire of both classical and contemporary ballet; a comprehensive commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and the centering of the patron experience in establishing effective and long-term financial sustainability. Atlanta Ballet’s vision is to be celebrated globally as one of the premier companies in the world of dance, recognized for its distinctive dancers, rich and diverse repertoire, respected stature in the Atlanta region, abiding commitment to diversity and inclusion at all levels of the organization, and notable impact on dance appreciation and education throughout the community. During each performance season, Atlanta Ballet achieves a balanced repertoire through a mix of programming. In addition to world premieres that contribute to its distinctive, signature repertory, Atlanta Ballet presents contemporary works by today’s most sought after choreographers that are compatible with its aesthetic and artistic identity. The Company also performs iconic masterworks that are beloved parts of classic ballet repertory. In 2018, Atlanta Ballet premiered a new, groundbreaking Nutcracker choreographed by Yuri Possokhov. Debuting in Atlanta, the production was invited the following year to perform at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Atlanta Ballet is committed to promoting greater diversity, equity, and inclusion. The organization participated in The Equity Project, a three-year, national collaborative effort involving 21 major ballet companies committed to achieving diversity and inclusion in professional ballet. Atlanta Ballet also launched an internal assessment to further advance its goals for diversity and inclusion and established its Transformation Team, an internal committee made up of representatives from all sectors of the organization who plan and monitor diversity and inclusion initiatives. Atlanta Ballet's goal to collaborate with diverse artists and support both female choreographers and choreographers of color has been pursued in various ways. The organization has recently commissioned new work by Dwight Rhoden, Juliano Nunes, and Claudia Schreier, who is currently serving a three-year term as resident choreographer. Atlanta Ballet has also recently collaborated with the Spelman College Glee Club. Atlanta Ballet serves underrepresented communities in numerous ways, including providing community members with complimentary performance tickets and students with scholarships for dance education. In 1996, Atlanta Ballet opened its school, the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education (CDE), which is dedicated to nurturing young dancers while providing an outlet for adults to express their creativity. Fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance, the CDE is now the sixth largest dance education program in the country. In the current fiscal year, with registration diminished due to COVID-19, the CDE is serving nearly 800 young dancers in its enrollment division in three principal locations and more than 500 young dancers in its community engagement programs at numerous other educational and community venues. Of the nearly 800 students in the enrollment division, approximately 13 percent identify as Black, 11 percent as Asian, 6 percent as LatinX, 1 percent as Indigenous, and 4 percent as mixed race. Of the more than 500 students currently served in the community engagement programs, approximately 84 percent identify as Black and 12 percent as LatinX. Atlanta Ballet's roots remain firmly grounded in the Atlanta community and continue to play a vital role in the city's cultural growth. The CDE works to maintain an environment that fosters teamwork, promotes healthy life choices, and advances self-esteem. Its Academy track within the enrollment division is designed to prepare dancers for a professional career. Atlanta Ballet 2 (AB2) is a pre-professional ensemble that receives the highest level of training through the CDE and six of its members have risen to Company status for the 2020-2021 season. AB2 and Academy perform at various local venues during The Nutcracker and Family Ballet series and all CDE programs perform their annual Spring Concert at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center at City Springs. Atlanta Ballet is governed by a 33-member board of trustees, led by Chair Nancy Field. President & CEO Arturo Jacobus, who is retiring at the end of his 12th season in July 2021, and Nedvigin oversee an administrative and artistic team of more than 140 people, including 38 seasonal dancers, 47 full- and part-time staff members, 19 full- and part-time faculty members, and a 53-member per-service orchestra. Atlanta Ballet has three collective bargaining agreements with the American Guild of Musical Artists for its dancers, American Federation of Musicians for its orchestra, and International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees for its stagehands. For the fiscal year ending July 31, 2020, annual revenues were $13.3 million, with approximately $7 million from contributions and grants, $4 million from The Nutcracker and other ticket sales, $1.5 million from the CDE, and the remainder from investments and other revenues. For the fiscal year ending July 31, 2021, annual revenues are projected to decrease due to COVID-19 to approximately $8.8 million, with $6.9 million from contributions and grants, $1.6 million from the CDE, and the remainder from ticket sales, investments, and other revenues. Atlanta Ballet’s permanently restricted endowment stands at $1.5 million. Its long-term goal is to build the endowment to $12 million and shorter-term goals are to fund a Working Capital Reserve of $2 million and develop a Recovery Fund of $1 million.

The city is home to the late Congressman John Lewis and the Ebenezer Baptist Church, which was led by the father of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Atlanta has also become a hub for the film industry, with television pilots, series, reality shows, and feature films currently in production. Popular television shows like The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Ozark, The Resident, and MacGyver are currently filming in neighborhoods throughout metropolitan Atlanta. Film studios, stages, and production companies are also expanding the entertainment industry landscape in Atlanta, including Trilith Studios and Tyler Perry Studios, one of the largest production facilities in the country. According to Americans for the Arts, the nonprofit arts and culture sector in metropolitan Atlanta is historically a $720 million industry—one that supports 23,514 full-time equivalent jobs and generates $64.5 million in local and state government revenue. Atlanta Ballet is part of a thriving performing arts and culture scene that includes the Tony award-winning Alliance Theatre, the Grammy award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Alternate Roots, Atlanta Jewish Music Festival, High Museum of Art, National Black Arts Festival, Atlanta Shakespeare Company, Youth Ensemble of Atlanta, Woodruff Arts Center, The Atlanta Opera, and Atlanta Jazz Festival, among many others.
