Adieu To A Legendary, Pioneering Diva




"I was quite taken with her, because I'd never seen the African influence in dance with that kind of strength and artistic power. It impacted my soul. No one had reached those heights. She was the definitive black dance company. She moved among the highest intellectuals of black culture, all the writers and painters and literary folk."
-- Harry Belafonte in the Los Angeles Times, March 26, 2006

I am sad to see one of our greats leave us... again.
The sad thing is as I look for her replacements all I find are video hoes :(

She was truly one of the greats.

Speaking of which - I've been meaning to start taking Dunham classes again for a long time. I'll do it in the summer. The new Alvin Ailey Dance Center is niiice. So much better than the sweaty studio of old they had a few years ago.
