NACHMO Prompt #2

The one. The only. Alvin Ailey. 

This is in response to NACHMO Prompt #2.

❇️ MASTER ❇️

(Find an iconic dance photo and recreate it.) Ailey’s strength, agility, and passion have inspired me, since I first started studying modern dance, as a young person at Backstage Dance Studio in Vegas. 

His lines, poise, and intensity are felt viscerally through the screen, whenever I watch him dance. Ailey founded his own dance company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, in 1958, which continues to perform and exhilarate audiences. 

Ailey believed that dance was for everybody.

What dance photo have you always wanted to recreate ?
