In Good Company (for lunch)

Christopher Wilson and Jacoby Pruitt made a powerful impression as the first dancers in today's demonstration.

Ailey II collaborated with SUNY Oswego and The Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) for a preview performance and lecture this afternoon. The Alvin Ailey masterwork “Revelations” was also featured. Dancers from Ailey II and Artistic Director Troy Powell facilitated a discussion afterwards. The event was held at CFAC.

The Alvin Ailey Dance Theater was formed in 1958. Ailey II was formed in 1974 as the company’s outreach and training vehicle.

If ¬†you work near Syracuse University or along the Connective Corridor, consider yourselves lucky if you made it to this event because tomorrow’s show at SUNY Oswego is sold out. Hopefully, CFAC will continue these lunchtime performances next semester.
