I’m just too excited to see my childhood friend HOPE BOYKIN as she performs Matthew Rushing’s ODETTA at the Fox Theater this February! I remember visiting her 20+ years ago at dance school in NY and she stayed true to her dream. Hope has been dancing with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for years and I couldn’t be more proud. 🙂
“I think that in a very narrow way, on a very small scale, I would say that I’m not like anyone else. To a newer audience I’m distinctive. But I’m still a woman… who loves to dance and loves what it means to be in Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. There’s definitely a pride I take from being a member of this company….I might not necessarily look like everyone else, but that’s okay.” – Hope Boykin
