We are just a week and a half away from the start of Ailey II’s first independent season at The Joyce Theater March 17 – 22. Please encourage your audience to come see 12 of the most passionate and talented performers in two dynamic programs.
“…the junior ensemble of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, exhilarates…The dancers are tremendous…intrepid dancers, with their breathtaking combination of athleticism and poise — they really seem capable of anything…”
The New York Times, Siobhan Burke – Apr. 6, 2014
“The clarity of the choreographers’ visions and the versatility of the 12 Ailey II dancers allow each piece to be seen as a unique statement with an atmosphere all its own.”
Broadway World, Eryn Goldstein – Apr. 8, 2014
The Company’s spring run at The Joyce will be the first time they will present an independent season at one of dance’s most cherished and historic venues. During an eight-performance engagement, their “off-the-charts energy” (The New Yorker) will be amplified in diverse repertory by emerging and established choreographers, including Jennifer Archibald, Amy Hall Garner, Dwight Rhoden, Katarzyna Skarpetowska, Manuel Vignoulle and Ailey II’s Artistic Director, Troy Powell.
