One way students can explore dance's past is by learning historical repertory. Ailey/Fordham BFA students take Black Traditions in American Dance and World Dance History, which are often coordinated with repertory classes. "The movement shows you a different side of what you're learning in the classroom," says Marie Paspe, a recent graduate of the program, who learned Blues Suite and Revelations from Ailey II artistic director emerita Sylvia Waters.
Alberta Ballet has worked hard for a very long time to bring Ailey II, the young company of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, to Alberta for good reason. This is a had-working fun-to-watch group of budding athletic dance artists comprising some of the company's most promising scholarship students, and they thrilled their audience Thursday night at the Southern Alberta Jubilee.
