  1. I love Alvin. They introduced me to dance and changed my life.

  2. Dance plays a daily part of my life because Im a special education aide and the children I work with love to dance.

  3. Dance is an expression of culture for me and Ailey represents that. As a child I often went to the shows and learned so much about myself. I hope to share that experience with my daughter

  4. Pamela M says:

    I love dance, it’s an expression of art and sentiments. My children and I move to sounds just to allow for rhythm in our lives.

  5. I have been dancing since I was 5 years old. I have been lucky enough to dance with some of the biggest names in the dance industry. My favorite teacher to work with is Savion Glover. I’d love to be able to go to the ballet next week.

  6. Patricia Tibere says:

    I love Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre and their movements inspire me every time I watch. I am a liturgical dancer, so dance has been intricately incorporated into my everyday life. I’m conscious of every move I make, and how it’s made; there’s something truly spiritual about the art of dance.

    (By the way, if you haven’t yet, please check out the photography of Richard Calmes. He’s pretty much exclusively a dance photographer and his shots will blow your mind!)

  7. My daughter is finishing her eighth year of dance next weekend and is performing in three recitals. Better than flowers would be tickets to Alvin Ailey. Pure magic.

  8. Dance is one of the ways me and my boys connect. we have sparatic dance parties to shake the sillies and have fun. Watching shows like America’s best dance crew, So you think you can dance and going to free or inexpensive shows in the city are always a fave. This year my 3rd grade son went against the grain and despite his fellow boy classmates bugging him about it auditioned when the school Ballet Tech came to scout at his school and now he’s earned himself a 6 week scholarship in the fall. We are thankful because it was something we would not have explored or been able to provide him. I’d love for him to be exposed to The Alvin Ailey Dancers because we keep a bucket list of all the things he’d get to do before ten that I hadn’t done until I reached my late twenties. Great Giveaway, thanks for hosting!

  10. my daughters wake up dancing every morning.

  11. Awesome giveaway! Watching my daughter learn to love dance as much as I did at her age is a singular joy. Tonight was her recital and I am not ashamed to say I squeed my head off.

  12. I love that Liz commented she was on her way to Lincoln Center, I was just there seeing the ABT, too!

    Have never had the pleasure of seeing an Alvin Ailey performance, but have always wanted to.

  13. My former roommate, Akki, is a DJ. When I attend her shows I dance like nobody is watching. But even if somebody watches I don’t mind. Because dancing is an excellent way to lose oneself…let the music take you to a magical place and let your worries go. Dancing makes me feel good during times when I need it most. Here’s Akki’s website too: https://soundcloud.com/akkimusicworld.

  14. Wendy Wallach says:

    Dance is something that both my daughter and I love to watch. We have been known to dance in the rain together when she was young.

  15. Mary Alice says:

    As a writer, all artful expressions are meaningful to me. But there’s something about movement that expresses soul and emotion in a way that very few other things can!

  16. Dance makes the world spin and looks more beautiful! I love painting of dancers like these ones by Norbert Waysberg http://norbertwaysberg.com

  17. I rarely enter contests Holly, but I am commenting from the pick-up area as I wait to get my girls from their ballet dress rehearsal…then run up to Lincoln Center to see Copelia with their grandma. How’s that for dance in my life?

    Besides, Alvin Ailey is my all time favorite. Revelations = Timeless Perfection.
