Art in Motion


I've been a huge fan of Alvin Ailey since my childhood years. At one point I wanted to be a professional dancer, and wanted to dance with the company, but I didn't stick with the training. So when ever I have the pleasure of watching a live dance performance the memories come back to me, and reminds me that dance is truly my first love in the field of art. Tomorrow evening I'm attending the 50th anniversary kick off gala for Alvin Ailey Dance Company. The dancers are performing the piece "Revelations" with live Jazz from the Lincoln Center Orchestra, and Oprah is giving the opening speech. Dance, Jazz, Oprah! Can't get any better than that....
