Ailey II

Tue Apr 9 - Sun Apr 14

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Ailey II embodies Alvin Ailey’s pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community, providing dance performances, training, and programming for all. Mr. Ailey selected Sylvia Waters as the company’s founding Artistic Director, a role she held for 38 years. Under her stead, Ailey II gained international renown for connecting the country’s finest early-career dance talent with the creative vision of today’s outstanding and emerging choreographers. Today, Francesca Harper sits at the helm of Ailey II, bringing fresh perspective to Mr. Ailey’s legacy, while propelling the company forward. The company offers a program highlighting its dedication to nurturing new creative voices during its stay at The Joyce Theater.
