CityDance School & Conservatory Student Performs in Alvin Ailey Gala

On Tuesday night, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater celebrated its 21st Opening Night Gala at the Kennedy Center Opera House. CityDance School & Conservatory student Tommy Nelson performed in the "Processional" section of Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece “Revelations” alongside Ailey company members and 5 other local young dancers. Former Principle Dancer Renee Robinson auditioned and worked with Tommy and the other students for just two weeks to prepare for the Gala. Congratulations to Tommy and all involved in the performance!
