Alvin Ailey Dancers Perform Rennie Harris’ Lazarus Together While Apart
Like Camille A. Brown, the pro dancers in the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater are 100% inspiring.  From their post:  “The Ailey dancers may be not be in the same place at this moment in time, but they are still finding ways to dance together. From creating unique renditions of Mr. Ailey’s Revelations to showing off the footwork from Rennie Harris’ Lazarus in their latest video, they haven’t slowed down. With that in mind, we’re introducing #AileyAllAccess: AlvinAiley.org/AileyAllAccess   (…) Join us for limited-time-only streamings of full-length works from the Ailey repertory, Ailey Extension dance classes, videos created by the Ailey dancers, and so much more.
