Just one year later the theater became the resident dance company at the Clark Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. Since Ailey was having problems with his weight he gave up dancing in favor of choreographing. Judith Jamison joined Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 1965 and quickly became an international star. Over the next 15 years, Mr. Ailey created some of his most enduring roles for her, most notably the tour-de-force solo Cry .Ms. Jamison continues to dedicate herself to asserting the prominence of the arts in our culture, and she remains committed to promoting the significance of the Ailey legacy – using dance as a medium for honoring the past, celebrating the present and fearlessly reaching into the future.
The number Liza was first introduced by Ruby Keeler who played Dixie Duggan in the musical Show Girl in July 1929, with the music written by George Gershwin and lyrics written by Ira Gershwin and Gus Kahn based on the novel by J.P.

Misunderstandings As represented in the story “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” by Flannery O'Connor, a good man was hard to be and had different ideas of how to pursue it. Going through the journey with the grandmother and her family learning about the Misfit, the audience can witness the actions being made by different characters to witness their fall and/or their triumph. When looking into the grandmother more deeply, the audience can detect the intensity of her self absorption. She would consider herself a lady with high standards of herself. “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady” (O’Connor 297).
Another image described is “loop of linen”, a symbol for Creon's denial of her right to wed. This increases the reader’s compassion for Antigone, as she not only died, but she died without ever marrying the one she loved: Haemon. In the same scene, the Messenger is responsible for delivering the unfortunate news to Creon about his son Haemon’s death. The messenger says, “Upon the sword-point family planted in/ The middle of his breast, and conscious yet/ Clings to the maid...so he lies dead with his arms round the dead” (Sophocles 46-47). The imagery displayed is overwhelming and a major moment of catharsis.
The family accepts them and invites her to the funeral. When she attends, she is embarrassed by her own weeping. She is homesick, and has been making attempts to belong for so long, and this reminds her of what she left behind. The funeral ended at the crematorium, a symbolic act of immolation. It’s possible that her unease at this part of the ceremony is related to the dislike which Westerners have about facing mortality, but it could also be that the reminder of the limitation of time made her shallow attempts at connecting with others seem ludicrous.
In fact, the dance is so simple, that women who do participate are keeping themselves safe from the exposure of other dances that may be portraying women as sexual objects. The Macarena’s lyrics may have bad intentions, but the dance moves do not line up, allowing for women to stray away from any societal norms that say objectification of the body is good. “Modern industrialized society chronically and pervasively objectifies the female body, and many women have come to view themselves through the lens of an external observer, habitually monitoring their own appearance whether in public or private settings” (Calogero, Tantleff-Dunn, Thompson, 1). In this article, the authors
Her greatest inspiration was her grandmother. She liked her grandmother because she believed she was strong, hardworking, and kind. An example was when she took care of Melissa Hoebee's grandfather when he was very sick so that he would not go to a nursing home. Unfortunately, Melissa Hoebee was sad when her greatest inspiration passed away at 2009 and wrote a speech about her to say for her funeral. Her speech was a way for her to say goodbye to her grandmother.
