Took 180 kids to The New York City Center to see the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
That's right my suburban friends we not only got to see the "masterpiece" of american dance; Revelations on a Thursday morning but we did not burn any fuel to get there. I love NY.
But I gotta say the show was waisted on me. I tried, but I just don't appreciate it. I mean the chirography was complex and it took a lot of planning for people not to crash into each other. I also think it is cool that the entire performance can be described in a written language so that another dancer can do it without actually having seen it. But I just don't see the art in it. I am glad other people do and good for them.
But remember, dear reader; I am the guy who woke up during the intermission in the Nutcracker and put his coat on.
