As part of its New York City Center season, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will dedicate a portion of all tickets sales to a special show Dec. 17 to benefit Dancers Responding to AIDS (DRA).

The one-night-only program will feature the Ailey company premiere of Paul Taylor’s Piazzolla Caldera, Astor Piazzolla’s fiery tango; Kyle Abraham’s Untitled America: First Movement - Abraham, exploring the lasting impact of the prison system; the world premiere of artistic director Robert Battle’s Awakening; and Ronald K. Brown’s Open Door, fusing African and modern dance. DRA was founded in 1991 by former Paul Taylor Dance Company members Denise Roberts Hurlin and Hernando Cortez, and is a program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. DRA supports the essential programs of The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative and The Dancers' Resource as well as more than 450 AIDS and family-service organizations in all 50 states.
