6 Dance Performances to See in N.Y.C. This Weekend

Our guide to dance performances happening this weekend and in the week ahead.

ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER at New York City Center (Dec. 28, 8 p.m.; Dec. 29, 2 and 8 p.m.; Dec. 30, 3 and 7:30 p.m.). On Sunday, this troupe wraps up its season with a special finale highlighting this year’s premieres. It was an impressive one in that regard, with compelling new dances by Ronald K. Brown and Rennie Harris; the evening culminates with “Revelations.” One more family matinee remains, on Saturday, which includes a Q. and A. with Ailey dancers following the performance. Looking ahead to Jan. 5 — on what would have been Ailey’s 88th birthday — Judith Jamison, the company’s artistic director emerita, holds a workshop at Ailey Studios. Open to dancers of all levels and backgrounds, it is a personal celebration of the group’s founder.
