Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater “Gala”

What I saw last night. Alvin Ailey at Lincoln Center. IMG_4357Before the show a Revelation’s class was taught on the plaza. IMG_4350Then there were speeches in the theater and performances by Ailey Campers, The Ailey School, Ailey II and the main company. A lot of tiers to get through so most of the pieces were excerpts. The exception was Revelations which instead increased the number of dancers to 50. It included children on stage and dancers in the aisles of the theater. More chaos than revelation.IMG_4355 Finally a dinner party for the patrons.   IMG_4356
