When living in New York, I would receive as a birthday present every December, tickets to a performance of the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater. The event was always trans-formative

Congratulation to Judith Jamison, who has done an incredible job and to everyone who is in involved with this wonderful dance company.

  1. I agree! I did not attend this year, as funds are tight — but I am so glad they are continuing to wow crowds after all these years and so much struggle. Their acclaim is well-deserved!

  2. Transformative indeed. I will never forget when my parents took me to see “Revelations”. One of the most vivid memories of my youth, and an inspiring, mind-blowing experience. They were absolutely brilliant.

    Thanks for the post!

    • Hi there artmodel-Going to see Ailey was for me an opportunity to surround myself with every aspect of art. I once saw them at Berkley where they did “Forgotten Time” to the music and singing of the Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares which was so beautiful and mournful that I had to stay quiet and by myself after the performance for about 10 min.
      Thanks for visiting
