Two years ago I had the honor of being a member of the Ailey 50. A group of community leaders in Atlanta and across the country that had a profound love and respect for the arts. It was a joy to help sellout the Fox Theater for every show that the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company performed. It was also the time leading up to Judith Jameson turning over the company to Robert Battle. It was magical to get a glimpse into what Robert’s inaugural season as Artistic Director would look like. It was also incredible to share with him how the company came to my middle school about 20 years ago when they performed for us and shared their stories with us kids. It was an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to this upcoming tour for the 2012-2013 season! Visit www.alvinailey.org and catch this amazing performance when it comes to your area!!
