Ailey FAMTIX promotion sold out

No comments:
As of this morning, we have sold out of Ailey FAMTIX!

This is always one of our most popular promotions. Thanks to the generosity of LaSalle Bank, we've been able to offer a free child ticket with the purchase of a full-price adult ticket for the Saturday matinee of Alivn Ailey American Dance Theater for the past few years. This year, we were able to give tickets to almost 300 children.

The Saturday matinee performance is the most popular so far, but great tickets are still available for all six shows. Check out our website for program information.
