Just Dance: Moonlight x Alvin Ailey

The Nowness Just Dance series presents a film from director Anna Rose Holmer, known for her 2015 drama The Fits. Moonlight x Alvin Ailey captures a collaboration between New York’s Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Academy Award–nominated composer Nicholas Britell. Choreographed by Ailey artistic director Robert Battle, this 2017 piece takes as its inspiration the story behind the Oscar-winning film. Dancers Jamar Roberts, Christopher Taylor, and Jeremy T. Villas dance on a blue-lit set to Britell’s Moonlight score.
