Can't Wait

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!

  2. Good for YOU!! Between Notre Dame, St. Mary's and St. Andrews college being near, many dance troups visit our area. I can never get Terry to go. It's a lucky day for me when my daughter and I go into Chicago to see a Broadway play that is on tour.

    So happy for you!
    xx, Carol

    1. They performed three pieces (none from Revelations which maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to see), and the dancers are remarkable. The last piece was so joyful that they had the audience captivated.

      My husband enjoyed it as much as I did, so keep working on Terry!

  3. WOW! I love to watch dancers. The video clip was amazing-so I"m sure it was electrifying to see them in person.

    1. The stamina of dancers is amazing. There were multiple individual vignettes going on at the same time. I came away so uplifted!
