It is a tradition! Sharon and Wendeen celebrate the holiday season, sharing their love for Manhattan; restaurants, theater, museums, and, the must see Alvin Ailey dance company. The joy of Ailey’s longtime signature piece, Revelations, never runs out of joy.
Last weekend Ailey paired Revelations with the beautiful new Odetta, a tribute to the legendary folk singer, at the Saturday matinee–a tip Sharon bestowed on Wendeen. And Wendeen returned the favor, tipping off Sharon, an avid civil rights activist to the impassioned, riveting choreography that explodes before your eyes in the dance company’s timely offering of “Uprising.”
The two sisters continue their family time celebration over the Chanukah and Christmas holidays, taking in great food for thought.
