          Not as easy a question to answer as, "Where have all the cookies gone?" I think FuzzyDave can answer that one. :-)

            • Alvin Ailey's PAS DE DUKE


              from Alvin Ailey Added 23.2K 20 1

              Pas de Duke is Alvin Ailey’s spirited modern dance translation of a classical pas de deux, originally created in 1976 as a showcase for Judith Jamison and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The work is comprised of five solos and duets that require extraordinary technical facility, flawless timing, and strong acting skills. Since its premiere nearly 40 years ago, it has been performed by generations of dancers who have each put their own unique twist on the choreography, and it has stood the test of time in part for how perfectly it captures the timeless sophistication of Duke Ellington's jazz music.

                from nshack Added 402 19 24

                I work with teenagers. I thought it would be interesting to pair their gaze with the songs that run around in their minds. I surveyed a bunch of kids about tunes that were important to them and then selected ten portraits. I tried to do the blur with the camera, but the controls jiggled the camera too much, so I had to revert to digital blur. I felt like I could have worked on it a lot longer, but the date for showing it came, ready or not. I may revisit the idea some time.

Marsalis provides a commentary that helps put Duke in context as he performs the Ellington repertoire for a new generation of listeners. The film also features jazz legend Illinois Jacquet on tenor sax, and Lindy-hop king, Frankie Manning, helping to celebrate the excitement, humor, and swinging spirit of Duke Ellington.

                    from Alvin Ailey Added 13.8K 16 0

                    By turns muscular and lyrical, 'The River' is a sweeping full-company work that suggests tumbling rapids and meandering streams on a journey to the sea. Ailey’s allegory of birth, life and rebirth abounds with water references, from the spinning “Vortex” solo to the romantic “Lake” duet, and from the powerful “Falls” quartet to the joyful “Giggling Rapids.” The choreography demonstrates Ailey’s admiration for classical ballet, but retains the modern and jazz influences found in all his work. “'The River' shows Mr. Ailey at his inventive best,” declared The New York Times.

                    • The Swing of Things


                      from Tyler Rabinowitz Added 4,482 16 1

                      "The Swing of Things" was made in Fall 2012, in memory of my grandfather Al Rabinowitz - who passed away in December 2005 from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). He absolutely loved the music and dancing of the swing era, but unfortunately towards the end of his life his illness left him unable to dance, or even smile. The thought of someone being unable to do what they loved really moved me, and so when I found an old picture of him swing dancing I felt compelled to bring to life the world of swing dance that my grandfather loved so much. I like to think that his silly swing dance moves live on through "The Swing of Things." I hope you'll help me share my grandfather's legacy by sharing this film with the world. :) Making "The Swing of Things" was a very special experience for me.
