Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of the best dance companies this country has ever produced. Does that sound like an exaggeration, a typical thing you read in calendar sections of alt-weeklies' Web sites? It isn't, though; the Ailey style is contemporary, joyous, and muscular, as carried on by artistic director and superstar Judith Jamison. The rarity of this chance to see the group accompanied by roots-gospel innovators Sweet Honey in the Rock (March 3 and 4 only) is also difficult to overstate. A balm to those who miss Sweet Honey: Ailey's grand masterpiece and audience favorite, "Revelations," is presented at all seven performances.
