Judith Jamison

role model

Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




World-renowned dancer and choreographer Judith Jamison has performed with the American Ballet Theatre and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater—where she was promoted to Artistic Director in 1989. Throughout her career, Jamison has received a primetime Emmy, the National Medal of Arts, the Kennedy Center Honor and many other awards. She also carried the 2002 Olympic Torch, was named among TIME’s World’s 100 Most Influential People and was inducted into the National Museum of Dance’s Hall of Fame. “I am motivated and inspired by people who have imagination, creativity, talent (and want to share it), those who want to help others, incredible dancers and those who appreciate the light within them.”

“My message to the world is do good. Do your best every day and absorb the beautiful world around you.”
