<B>Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to get new home</B> <P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Tucked among hundreds of pages of city expenses proposed by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for fiscal year 2001 is a one-line pledge of $7.5 million to build a colossal Manhattan home for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. <P>The $47.5 million building - planned for Ninth Avenue and 55th Street - would replace the 43-year-old company's cramped, rented quarters at 211 W. 61st St., the organization said last week. The new center's design would double the company's dance floor space to 71,000 square feet. <P>"It's a historic event," said Sharon Gersten Luckman, executive director of the Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation. "It was very important to us to get city money because, well, one, because of the money, but also because it represents the city's support."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><A HREF="http://www.nandotimes.com/noframes/story/0,2107,500477736-500734405-504210936-0,00.html?group=entertainment" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>

This is very good news. I have heard a number of negative statements about Guiliani vis a vis the arts lately - obviously not entirely deserved.<P>It's good news for that very special company.
