With Willing Spirit, a Reprise for Ailey Dancers

What an incredible story. Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish, returns to the stage to perform “Revelations,” the company’s best-known work. A Former Alvin Ailey Dancer (1984-1997) is in her 50s, just had a hip replacement, and she still dances beautifully. Goes to show you that you can do anything at any age if you put your mind to it. And who knows, you might be better at that particular task than you were in your earlier years. Never stop trying and pursuing what you love.
