March Dance Challenge 15 – Alvin Alley Revelations

Video

Now for a master class in dancing and technique. This is a piece from Alvin Alley Revelations, Fix Me Jesus. Now it took me a while to decide with one of the great dances to show you from this master piece but I chose this one just because it is so beautiful. I went to see Revelations a few years ago and was just blown away with it perfection.

It was first brought to New York in 1960, and it tells the story of African Americans faith and their rise from slavery to freedom. The gospel music is great. When I saw their technique, I recognised the movements because away at ballet school the syllabus we used was influenced by Alvin.

So I hope you find a moment to actually watch it and enjoy! X
