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

“You must enjoy every moment of this,”

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

Arizona Magic of Music & Dance at Barnes & Noble

leave a comment »

Last Summer I attended a performance of “Snow White” produced by Arizona Magic of Music and Dance a program for children and young adults with physical or mental disabilities — that prepares them in one week to stage a wonderful theater production that is written and choreographed just for them. This was an inspirational event. This weekend in Scottsdale they have partnered with Barnes & Noble to help raise funds for this year’s production of the Jungle Book.
