I thought the performance was wonderful! "Arden Court" was beautiful; "Minus 16" was one of the most funny, creative and fun dance numbers I have ever seen; the classic "Revelations" was just awesome.

Alvin Ailey never disappoints. Swept up in the majesty of the dance, I was lifted by the experience. Everyone should go whether you have been before or not. A winner.

This was the best Alvin Ailey performance I've seen in a few years. I think the new executive director chose choreography that did what it was intended to do - captivate, encourage, entertain, and invigorate us! Much deserved Kudos to him for...continued
