Alvin Ailey Dance Theater Meteors Into Buffalo This Week!

On Tuesday and Wednesday night this week a world dance phenomena ‘arrives to thrive’ at Shea’s. Tickets for both nights are still available, so please grab them as quickly as you can. Artistic Director Judith Jamison will be there to guide the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, and its members will be there to dance up a storm of sound and vision, together channeling the mystical powers and dreams of Alvin Ailey.
Judith Jamison is behind the scenes these days – rounded, big, buoyant and truly ‘Buddha-ful’ carrying on as the medium of Alvin Ailey’s theme. Once a tall, young black woman from Philadelphia, she left her inner city… yearning to launch her dreams in Ailey’s Troupe… always a fascinating element in Ailey’s productions. Her long, expressive arms flailed in a full, strong-bodied glee on stage – flirting challenges of disaster and elegance as she wisped dance moves mounting excitement and fervor.
Jamison now leads a three tiered choreography team: she heads up the Past in Dance, and her two assistant choreographers head up the Present and Future dance themes. Always from the Future, today’s Alvin Ailey’s Dance Theater is the ultimate in jazz, classical and improvisational blending. It amounts to true excitement.
Together, this dance management team takes their dancers from Harlem, to the entire world. Decades have now passed since their first trip to Russia. This is the essential gift to Buffalo this winter – their coming here to entrance us with their magic.
Come celebrate with these 30 dancers who embrace the world that embraces them – as the most exciting dance theater on Earth.
