Having "Revelations" at Santa Ana High School
Students in the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater residency at Santa Ana High School demonstrated their talents as dancers and choreographers on Thursday, February 4. Click above to see the video. The week-long residency was held in conjunction with the Ailey’s engagement here March 2-7 and was underwritten by J.P. Morgan/Chase. Nasha Thomas-Schmitt, Co-Director, Arts in Education & Community Programs and National Director of AileyCamp, explained to guests what the kids associated with dance, emotionally, intellectually and physically, and directed a demonstration of their progress. Attending was Santa Ana Unified School District Superintendent Jane Russo, Santa Ana High Principal Julie Infante and Myeisha Gamino and Carla James from J.P. Morgan/Chase. A second residency was also held last week at Lathrop Intermediate School in Santa Ana.
