There was more than just dancing onstage at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Spirit Gala at Lincoln Center.
Guests — including author Zadie Smith, “Orange Is the New Black” actress Lorraine Toussaint, artist Kehinde Wiley and fashion design duo the Blonds — took in a performance of an “autobiographical ballet” choreographed by Troy Powell called “Testimony.”
But attendees themselves later danced on a promenade to tunes from DJ MOS.
We hear “Pose” star Ryan Jamaal Swain lived up to the show’s name, “striking poses all night” with dancers, students and company directors, a spy said.
