Description: What would your holiday be without an Alvin Ailey performance?

Won't you join The Black Ivy Alumni League (BIAL), The Cornell Black Alumni Association (CBAA), The African American Alumni Association of Columbia Business School (4A), and The Black Alumni of Dartmouth Association (BADA) this holiday season as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre shares a special night full of surprises. You may have missed last year's performance but you won't want to do that this year.

In addition to an amazing show with new dance pieces, there's even more again this year... The Black Ivy Alumni League invites ticket holders to our own Pre-Theatre Wine, Hors d'Oeuvres and Networking Reception held at New York City Center's special VIP Lounge. Yes, folks, we will enjoy a private pre-performance reception with unlimited wine and hors d'oeuvres complete with the holiday spirit brought to you by the Black Ivy Alumni League. Tickets purchased also help support our "Bridging the Gap" all-Ivy holiday party which we keep free to enable all Black Ivy League students plus younger and older alumni to attend.
