Did you see Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on So You Think You Can Dance last night?

Any doubts I had about Robert Battle taking over as Artistic Director have been wiped clean after watching the company perform his piece The Hunt last night.

The movement was jerky, yet defined; grounded yet free-flowing. I didn’t see any vertical T’s or pique arabesques which was refreshing. The three male couples ate up the stage with their elongated runs and gravity defying leaps.
