Balletomanes and hoofer-lovers of all kinds turned out Wednesday at the opening night gala for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The event was hosted by the Blue Ribbon and Center Dance Assn. at the Music Center.
“They’re the best of American dance right now,” said Patti Skouras. “There’s no other dance company in the world with this kind of youthful, vibrant energy.”
The Ailey company has performed for an estimated 19 million people in 48 states and in 68 countries on six continents, including two residencies in South Africa.
