The dancing was spectacular. Perpetual motion. I loved that they were real people dancing with with people (as opposed to other dance groups where they are very inpersonal in their dancing). And the music was moving. If that didn't move you, you were unmovable.
However the venue was poo. (Not the fault of Goldstar.) The tickets were supposedly on the "first balcony" but that's because they call their first balcony something else. It was way up in the nosebleed section. Also, the elevator does not go to the balcony so there were a tremendous amount of stairs to climb. From our seats, the dancers looked only two inches high.
But the dancing was worth the poor seats.

Choreographer: George Faison
Otis Redding’s sassy, sizzling music sets the stage for George Faison’s playful battle of the sexes. The yearning sensuality of such timeless songs as... “Satisfaction,” “Try a Little Tenderness,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and other favorites bursts through this sexy, charming and witty suite.
Choreographer: Alvin Ailey
Alvin Ailey choreographed his stupendous signature solo Cry as a birthday present for his dignified mother, Mrs. Lula Cooper, and created the dance on... his stunning muse, Judith Jamison. Mrs. Cooper, Ms. Jamison and Carmen de Lavallade could be considered the archetypal Ailey woman - a role that has been passed on to all the women in the Ailey ranks to whom Ms. Jamison has taught this solo.
Choreographer: Robert Battle
Artistic Director Designate Robert Battle’s athletic work for six men reveals the predatory side of human nature and the primitive thrill of the hunt.... A thundering percussion soundtrack by Les Tambours du Bronx drives the explosive movement that runs the gamut from modern sports to the rituals of the gladiators. This is Mr. Battle’s sixth work for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
Choreographer: Alvin Ailey
Alvin Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African-American - ”sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant,... but always hopeful.” This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius. Using African-American traditional spirituals, this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul.
The program is current at time of publication, but is subject to change.
