I saw the brilliant Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on Saturday evening...

This is 'possibly the most successful modern dance company on the planet' to quote The New York Times and the combination of strength, technique and energy inspired by the blues, spirituals and gospel music was fantastic and uplifting. The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater started in 1958 with a performance, by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that changed forever the perception of American dance. They have now performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents. If like me you love modern dance you can catch them at the Alhambra in Bradford on 15 and 16 October.
