HONORING ALVIN AILEY ON BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Thursday, Feb 8, 2018

Do a little dance to celebrate Alvin Ailey in honor of Black History Month!

Alvin Ailey was a dancer, choreographer, and activist born in 1931 during the Great Depression and a time of racial segregation. At 18, his life was forever changed after seeing a ballet performance where he discovered dance was his passion. Lester Horton became his mentor and inspiration.

Five years later, he made his Broadway debut in House of Flowers by Truman Capote with only more dance success to come. At 27, he formed his own dance company the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. He died at 58, but the dance theater continues to perform and thrive!


WE CELEBRATE  MADAM C.J. WALKER – IN HONOR OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
