"As a dancer I admirer companies such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and to be able to veiw the companies greatest pices of work when ever I want to is wonderful. It is also a special treat to see the dacers dance when the company really made a name for itself, when everyone was able to see the work of Mr. Ailey. My two most favorite pieces Cry and Revelations are what I call masterpieces and when I veiw them I feel the same spirit as if Ailey was there with me."

"i must warn you im not a dancing or video buff, but i found this dvd very entertaining. judith jamison's divining is very atheletic, and innovative from the ballets i have seen. and i cant stop watching ailey's revelations because it not only good ballet but the gospel songs are fun to listen too. other than that the dvd only offers a lil clip of how ailey started the alvin ailey company, and the special features only have the last three songs done w/o interruptions, meaning w/ no credts scrolling over the performance. hope you likeyj.b."
