Abstract:

Dancer and choreographer Judith Jamison was born on May 10, 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the age of six, Jamison began taking lessons with the Judimar School of Dance in Philadelphia. After a brief stint at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, Jamison returned to Philadelphia in 1964 to study dance and kinesiology at what is now the University of the Arts. In 1964, Jamison earned critical acclaim for her work with the American Ballet Theatre. A year later, Jamison joined the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT). In 1971, she received international recognition for her performance of Cry, a solo piece written by Ailey in honor of African American women and mothers. In 1980, Jamison debuted on Broadway, where she performed in Sophisticated Ladies with Gregory Hines. Jamison took over as artistic director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater following Ailey’s death in 1989. She retired in 2011 as artistic director emerita.
