Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to Chicago for performances March 7 to 11.

The troupe, which features dancer Renaldo Maurice, who is a native of Gary, will perform a mixed repertoire at The Auditorium Theatre.

This season, the company, which has performed at The Auditorium Theatre for five decades, will deliver a piece by choreographer Talley Beatty, a Chicago native. Other new works also will be featured.

Fans also will get the chance to see the Ailey favorite "Revelations," which traditionally ends the troupe's shows. For more information, visit
