Alvin Ailey to perform last Carolina show with artistic director Judith Jamison

Although the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater may come back to the Memorial Hall stage in the future, this week’s trio of performances is the last time the group will perform under Judith Jamison. Jamison has been artistic director of the influential company since 1989, and danced with the company from 1965 to 1980. She will retire at the end of the season this spring. The company has performed at UNC at least four times in the past, but this is the first time they have performed on campus for more than two nights, said Sean McKeithan, Carolina Performing Arts Marketing Director.
