We. Dance., featuring a text written and performed by Hope Boykin, is now live on YouTube.

“Our voices ring loudly through our bodies’ language,” says Hope Boykin in Alvin Ailey's powerful new short film We. Dance. Boykin, a dancer at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater—who wrote and performed the text for the video—is one of several dancers featured in the film, released June 3 against the backdrop of a global Black Lives Matter movement.

You can watch We. Dance. on YouTube now.

Featuring a text written and performed by Boykin, and music by At The End of Times, Nothing, the video is by Danica Paulos.

In conjunction with the new Lincoln Center at Home portal, the Ailey organization broadcasts its 2015 Ailey at Lincoln Center performance of its signature dance piece, Revelations, June 4. Following an 8 PM streaming premiere, the broadcast will be available for a limited time on demand. Learn more here.
