$125 per person (includes tax-deductible $50 donation to NJHS)

Join The New Jersey Historical Society for a night of soaring dance and music, as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater celebrates its 50th Anniversary. The genius of Alvin Ailey changed forever the perception of American dance; today, the legacy continues with Judith Jamison’s remarkable vision and the extraordinary artistry of the company’s dancers. In Go in Grace, set to music composed and performed live by Sweet Honey in the Rock, company member Hope Boykin weaves a gentle, affecting tale of community, family and growth that illustrates the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.\\\\\\\"

After the show, join us downstairs at the Theatre Square Grill for an exclusive dessert reception and awards presentation with Judith Jamison, Artistic Director. We have reserved a limited number of excellent orchestra seats. Make your plans now to join us! Please fill out the form below and return it with your payment today. (RSVP by April 7, 2009.)
