Solomon Dumas

South Side Weekly - A Dancer's Homecoming

Solomon Dumas is nervous about dancing in Chicago. As a new member of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, based in New York City, the twenty-eight-year-old Dumas did not get stage fright on a recent European tour, where he performed in Denmark and Switzerland, nor in the other cities where he performed on a nationwide domestic tour that has brought him, finally, back to his roots.
