The Sheer Magnitude of Movement
The Alvin Ailey Company is historically one of the most poignant dance companies in the world with an intentionally and beautifully inclusive selection of dancers, choreographers and culture of powerful movement. Ailey led the original incarnation of the ensemble to fame in New York, breaking barriers and destroying people's perceptions of African Americans in dance, while holding true to the culture that fueled his creative expression. Ailey II was created by Ailey's current creative director, Troy Powell for aspiring young dancers to keep the Ailey legacy alive and in the forefront of modern dance. Popejoy Hall hosts this legendary company in a one night only performance on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 7:30pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to flood young dancers with inspiration at this all ages show with tickets ranging from $25 to $49 plus a few fees. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
