Cheyanne @ ‘Ailey 60’ - my mom was HOOKED!
What’s it about?
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s 60th anniversary production features new works by contemporary choreographers as well as some longtime favorites like Revelations. That popular piece was not included at my performance, but I’m going to pretend I’m not mad about it…
My mom and I had a lil’ date night! It was the day after Christmas, which is actually my mom’s birthday, so it was perfect to be able to treat her to this experience. I’ve never been an avid dance lover — I’m more into the dialogue side of storytelling — but my mom was HOOKED. No surprise there considering my mom spent most of her adolescence dancing and touring around the world. It was our first time seeing a dance show together :) One of the highlights for me was being able to sit in a venue with my mom and see so many people who looked like us, both on stage and in the audience. For the first time ever, I didn’t feel like I was part of the minority in the room. Wins all around friends!
