— Richard Scheinin. The ‘Games’ begin. There are some really potent, highly anticipated films looming for 2012: Josh Whedon’s “The Avengers” (May 4), Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” (May 11), Pixar’s “Brave” (June 22), the reboot of “The Amazing Spider-Man” (July 3) and “World War Z” with Brad Pitt. But for a lot of folks, the big noise at the movies next year will be “The Hunger Games,” the first in what is planned to be a series of films based on Suzanne Collins’ excellent young adult novels. The books — which have a truly devoted following — follows the story of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem. In this world, the big annual event is the “Hunger Games,” a televised show in which one boy and one girl from each of the country’s 12 districts must fight to the death. The very good Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss. Gary Ross (“Seabiscuit”) directs and what could be the next “Harry Potter” film series opens March 23.

“My mother introduced me to the music of Sarah Vaughan, Ella, and all these great vocalists,” Battle said. “It’s a little bit of a tribute to them. I remember being fascinated listening to Ella scat. I just listened over and over. When I hear something like ‘Airmail Special’ or ‘How High the Moon,’ I get very excited about sharing it and seeing someone else have this revelation about the humor and brilliance of what she’s doing rhythmically.”. The generational conversation in AAADT doesn’t just take place between choreographers. The company’s longest serving dancer, Linda Celeste Sims, joined the company at the age of 19 in 1996, and blossomed as a Jamison protégé. Winner of numerous dance awards, including a Bessie, she’s performed as a guest star on “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars.” She never met Ailey himself, but she partnered with Dudley Williams, who first danced with AAADT in 1963 and performed with the company until 2005 and taught at the Ailey school until his death 10 years later.
