Tonight marks the 50th anniversary of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.  They will open their new season tonight at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.  Enjoy the clip of “Cry” which he created for his mother.  I was fortunate enough to see dancer Donna Wood perform this piece a few years ago at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ.  Listen with your headphones for better sound.

    That’s why I am a great supporter of the National Endowment for the Arts. You’d be surprised to know that I also enjoy classical music, the opera, and even ballet.
