Ailey II


Ray and I saw Ailey II last night at Chandler Center for the Arts, and it was awesome! They are a modern/jazz dance company. Ray bought the tickets for me for Christmas. Wasn't that a thoughtful gift? It was excellent and the dancers were so strong and flexible (I really need to get back in shape)! I was reminded why I love the art of dance so much. Dance is such a great way to convey emotion, and I'm so grateful for the role it has played in my life. They did some newer pieces , as well as some of Alvin Ailey's original works, like Revelations, which was choreographed in 1960 and set to gospel music. Here is the link if you want to see bits and pieces of that one: http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWJzSP7irwM
