Offstage + Unbound: Episode 3 – An Interview with Hope Boykin of the Ailvn Ailey American Dance Theater

In our third installation of “Offstage and Unbound,” The Music Center’s President and CEO Rachel Moore chats with Hope Boykin of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She joined the company in 2000 and has choreographed three stunning works for the company. They include Acceptance In Surrender in 2005, in collaboration with fellow Ailey company members Abdur-Rahim Jackson and Matthew Rushing; Go in Grace in 2008 with music by the award-winning singing group Sweet Honey in the Rock; and her most recent piece, r-Evolution, Dream, which was inspired by the speeches and sermons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with original music by Ali Jackson.

Hope is a three-time recipient of the American Dance Festival’s Young Tuition Scholarship and received a New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Award.
