The work of American dance legend Alvin Ailey has been performed by illustrious dance companies around the world. Ailey founded the junior company of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater—Ailey II—to provide opportunities for young professional dancers to perform his works throughout the country. Under the artistic direction of Troy Powell, the Ailey spirit shines in this critically acclaimed company:
“Off-the-charts energy.” — The New Yorker
“The dancers proved indefatigable, virtuosic and relentlessly sexy.” — Los Angeles Times
“Second to none.” — Dance Magazine
