Beautiful performance by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at the Lincoln Center tonight.
My first time seeing Alvin Ailey live. Could you believe that after all the classes at the Alvin Ailey Extension?
My favorite of the night goes to “Mass”. Am awed by the way the dancers gracefully glide across the dance floor. Their fluid motions and elasticity. Not just in individual dancer’s movements, but the whole group respond together and to each other so beautifully. Finally, when the drum kicks in (there’s a live band on stage), everything goes into high gear. Gracefulness turns into precision and energy. Just incredible!
