Ailey

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Uptown
2009
Choreography by Matthew Rushing

Dancing Spirit
2009
Choreography by Ronald K. Brown

Revelations
1960
Choreography by Alvin Ailey
In a rather spur of the moment move Emma and I bought two tickets to see the AAADT perform today. I was eager to see Revelations since the piece has ended every Ailey production since it's premier in 1960. It did not disappoint, but the highlight for both Emma and me was the riveting Dancing Spirit. I have never seen such grounded choreography that celebrated the individuality of the dancers while maintaining an undeniable connectivity between them. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
