In 1958, Alvin Ailey launched his company with the goal of providing more opportunities to black talent, but he soon opened up the troupe to dancers of all racial backgrounds, continuing to promote diversity while casting based only on talent. Ailey was known to hire dancers with backgrounds in jazz, ballet, modern and, later, hip-hop. Sacurrent.com
