Alvin Ailey
The Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe dancing "Revelations"

 

The Women's Inter-Cultural Exchange (WIE) mentees from Garinger High School and their mentors experienced the thrill of a lifetime on February 27th when they visited the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and saw the Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe perform.  When asked what they liked about the performance, one mentee replied, "When they were dancing about freedom it reminded me of when I was getting away from the war in Kenya for freedom".  Another stated "I loved the choreography and the uniforms and how everything matched the mood of the dance and the colors how the vibrancy and dullness each complimented each other beautifully".  They also saw the Broadway musical "Finding Neverland" along with their several mentors and friends in October.

Before the performance, the mentees and mentors had dinner together at Cantina 1511  sponsored by Mentor Alyshia Osborne of the Charlotte Center City Partners.  Additional thanks to the Joan Zimmerman and the Blumenthal Performance Arts Center for sponsoring this event.

The WIE Mentoring Across Difference program was developed to complement the students' leadership and development skills and allow them to be more visible to senior level people, both in businesses and the community.  It's an opportunity for these students to receive guidance from leaders they may normally not have access to. This program ensures promising students are nurtured by others who are willing to share their time, experiences and formulas for success in a global society.
