Alvin Ailey did it right
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performs frequently throughout New York City in a variety of venues, most often at City Center. Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation is the umbrella organization that supports the activities of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ailey II, The Ailey School, Ailey Arts In Education & Community Programs and The Ailey Extension. AADF's mission is to further the pioneering work of Alvin Ailey by establishing an extended cultural community which provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people. This performing arts community plays a crucial social role using the beauty and humanity of the African American heritage and other cultures to unite people of all races, ages and backgrounds.

      Glorious Judith jamison
      The first time I went to the Ailey, back in the 70s, I still remember as if it were yesterday, the impact that the awe-inspiring Judith Jamison had on me. When she came swirling out on stage, I was stunned. This was the most beautiful person I'd ever seen. And the most physically commanding presence of anyone, ever. Such a talent, whom we shall not likely see again. Ms. Jamison took over the stage and simply captured me for the rest of the evening; hell, for the rest of my life. The pinnacle of NYC dance. Sheer magic. Utterly sublime!
