WOW!!

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.

It was dark, suspenseful and gutsy.

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.
