Celebrating Alvin Ailey with Judith Jamison Workshop
Living legend and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Artistic Director Emerita will conduct a Celebrating Alvin Ailey workshop open to dancers of all levels and backgrounds. In this two-hour workshop, the rich history and creative complexities of Alvin Ailey’s critically-acclaimed choreography will be explored with live accompaniment. Assisted by Company member Khalia Campbell, Ms. Jamison will break down Ailey’s stirring choreography and infuse the movement with her own unique style and clear focus on musicality. One of the most influential American dance figures of the late 20th century, Ms. Jamison fulfills Alvin Ailey’s belief that “dance came from the people and must be delivered back to the people,” with this deeply personal study of his artistic legacy.
