Alvin Ailey Celebrates 50th Anniversary
What did Mr. Ailey teach his dancers about 'Revelations'? from AlvinAileyAmericanDanceTheater on Vimeo.
I can't believe that the Alvin Ailey Dance Company is celebrating 50 years! His classic, Revelations is still being performed. Alvin Ailey was a genius and a pioneer in dance, and he seemed to have passed his vision on to his students. Young people today need talented teachers to inspire them to greatness. Parents and teachers can get inspiration from him to encourage and expand young people's horizon, and if you get an opportunity take them to see Revelations. It is part of our history.
