I am so excited that tonight I will get to see Ailey II. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to see the Ailey Dancers, but they will be performing tonight at the Strand Theater. Years ago, for my 30th birthday, my husband took me to see Baryshnikov and Peter Martins perform in Biloxi, Mississippi--it remains one of the highlights of my life. Now, to be able to see a performance by the Ailey Dancers is a thrill I never expected to see and it is local!
What miracles dancers reveal about the capability of the human body!
