DANCER, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
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.”
