Presented by Lesley University
March 5, 2014
Judith Jamison cast a spell over audiences from her first appearance with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 1965, where she became artistic director in 1989 and went on to earn a National Medal of Arts and a Kennedy Center Honor, among many other awards.
Lesley presents a special evening with Jamison on Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. in Washburn Auditorium on Lesley’s Brattle Campus, 10 Phillips Place, Cambridge.
“Judith Jamison's dancing is the pure embodiment of life in all of the dimensions of the human experience,” notes Dr. Nancy Beardall, coordinator of Lesley University’s Dance/Movement Therapy program. “Her dedication and passion will inspire our Lesley community to celebrate and affirm the revitalizing nature and power of dance and the arts.”
The event, sponsored by the Lesley University Strauch-Mosse Visiting Artist Lecture Series, is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited and registration is required: www.lesley.edu/alvin-ailey.
