This weekend you’ll have the chance to see a great show! What makes this show so “great”? Glad you asked...
The genres of dance being presented are varied, covering the entire contemporary dance spectrum from modern to ballet all in one evening. There’s something for everyone!
Students (or those who have held onto their student IDs - hehe) can buy discounted student rush tickets, and you only have to show up 15 minutes early to claim your ticket!
Nicole’s piece is due to close the show, which means you’ll be leaving with a smile on your face! I am, to the best of my ability, speaking unbiasedly when I say that The Chicken Went to Scotland is a dance that stands out as a work that is uniquely high-energy, bright, and refreshing, and I think the way that it will make you feel is directly related.
Going to a performance = supporting the arts. Supporting the arts = showing presenters, funders, and the outside public that dance is a relevant and desired art form that needs room to keep growing. This is hugely important during a time when dance is being forced out of certain budgets and media outlets (*ahem* Nancy Walton Laurie and Time Out New York). Keep dance alive by showing up!
The show takes place at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, which means you’ll get to sneak a peek at Robert Battle’s larger-than-life-sized portrait as well as throw back pictures of Judith Jamison and Mikhail Baryshnikov on the City Center stage.
There are three performances, so (almost) no excuse to miss it!
And also you are obviously guaranteed a huge hug after the show from yours truly… So see you there!
