After over three decades lighting up the stage, beloved Ailey star Renee Robinson will give her final performance with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York tonight, December 9th at 7:30pm.
A revered Ailey dancer since 1981, she is the last remaining company member selected by founder Alvin Ailey, the female dancer with the longest tenure in the Company’s history, and the only dancer to have performed under all three Artistic Directors. In recognition of her artistry, Ms. Robinson will receive the prestigious 2012 Dance Magazine Award on Monday, December 3rd at an event held at The Ailey Citigroup Theater. On Thursday evenings in November, Renee will lead a special Revelations Master Class Series at The Ailey Extension featuring the fundamentals of the Horton technique, movements from Revelations, live accompanists, and original music.
