Celebrating our beautiful 2017-2018 season with honoring and giving great appreciation to Alicia Graf Mack, who blessed us as our wonderful modern faculty and guest choreographer, by presenting her new work " The Decision".
We also celebrate Alicia's new journey as the new director of Juilliard's DanceDevision.
She has faced many obstacles and challenges as a dancer such as the unexpected closure of the company that she was dancing in, rheumatoid arthritis and a severe disc injury. However, each time she made a choice not to let anything take her away from her destiny. She knew the power of " Decision " and it enabled her to become a notable principal dancer of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
"Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision.” — Tony Robbins
We would like to offer this concert to celebrate all the people who are walking into their new journey with their decisions based on their convictions.
