Spring Arts Preview 2013: Dance
It's been four years since Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's last Santa Barbara stop-through. In that time, America's most celebrated dance company has ushered in a new artistic director and a bold new repertoire, which will be on display when the group takes the stage at the Arlington Theatre this April.

When I and mom used to drive to SB for sis' dance class at Ms Usher's near the university club, little did we know that sis one day would grow to be so darn big and also a big star at the BIG dancers company, the Jumbotanz Troupe. Jumbotanz never sells tickets and their audiences are apparently "invited" and keep the whole thing secret. When they performed here in SB we were not allowed to attend, and sis wouldn't talk about what they do. When we were on vacation in Vancouver, we thought that the hotel might know about them because sis said they were doing a show or two in Canada. He got us "invites" for the Homeless Ballet show instead, thinking that this must be it with the "invite" thingy. Well that was scary. Apparently the organizers drive a bus around and pick up homeless people with "potential" and give them stuff and then drop them off at the secured theatre (thank god it was secured) where the homeless run around screaming and crying while the light show plays over them and the music booms and howls and they slip and tumble and holler and keep running for some reason while the audience kinds of interacts with them and then they sort of pass out and are carted off and bussed to towns other than those where they were found. Scary, weird, awesome, awful, scary. I would pay good money, sorry to admit, to see this again. Let me know if you have an "invite" to sell.

Have you got pictures? I would appreciate pictures. Pictures often and by definition cannot do justice to dance expression but a few pix would ignite the interest.Videos would be best. Thanks ever so much.
