AAA Dance Theatre
Aiyana went on this trip with twenty-one other Plumstead Manor students in Years 9 to 13, led by the Dance Department. We saw ‘LIFT’, ‘Awakening’ , the powerful statement solo ‘Cry’ dedicated to Ailey’s mother and ‘to black women everywhere’, and finally Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece ‘Revelations’ which as it always does gained a standing ovation, cheers of sheer joy & wonder and three encores. We all left the theatre energised and inspired. We hope to take the students to the Royal Opera House to see the full-length The Sleeping Beauty in February 2017.
