Often times the myth is that what male dancers do is easy. In this SundayArts Profile, the men of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, including Artistic Director-Designate Robert Battle, introduce themselves and dispel that notion.

    The heady world of professional male dancers was demystified with this wonderful video of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Having said that there was no loss of appreciation for the beauty, strength, grace and lovely rhythm robustly prevalent in these male dancers artistically carving amazing movements into their dance spaces.

    The Ailey male dancers (as well as the females) give an ultra exciting air to the human body as they spin, leap and gyrate with lavish and awe inspiring dignity on the immensely heightened relevance they bequeath a dance floor with.

    The powerful inner mission of each movement these phenomenal male dancers challenge themselves to fulfill creates dance that is exquisitely breathtaking. These wonderful, disciplined and intelligent men are athletes of the most refined expressions of the Divine in motion. I truly loved this informative dance video par excellence. And congratulations to Artistic Director-Designate Robert Battle. I wish all the best to Judith Jamison. Ms. Jamison will always be a sweet and instructive presence felt with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
