HUNT--Calvin. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the Ailey Board of Trustees, and staff mourn the passing of Calvin Hunt, our beloved Senior Director of Performance & Production. In 1982, at the invitation of Alvin Ailey, he joined the production staff and over the next three decades he became a pivotal leader within the organization, working closely with Artistic Directors Judith Jamison and Robert Battle. Calvin played an integral role managing Ailey's tours around the world, extending Ailey's role as a cultural ambassador. Calvin had an unparalleled love for Ailey and a passion for life. His sense of humor, wise counsel, and warm friendship will be deeply missed. He was an extraordinary man whose passing is a great loss to the Ailey family and the world of dance. Our hearts go out to his loving wife Margaret, their two children Eli and Brenna, and his entire family. A memorial celebration will be announced later in the spring. Joan H. Weill, Chairman; Robert Battle, Artistic Dir..; Masazumi Chaya, Associate Artistic Director; Bennett Rink, Executive Dir.; Judith Jamison, Artistic Director Emerita
