The 56-year old AA American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, as well as 71 countries on six continents. Often engaged as an ambassador for modern American dance, the troupe saw its first such engagement in 1962 as part of John F Kennedy's south east Asian and Australian tour. Whilst its repertoire is known primarily for its jazz influences, chief creative director Robert Battle has added to the dances by welcoming collaborations with other eminent choreographers, which reflects the company's ever-expanding body of work.
