Ailey II is an exceptional company that merges the spirit and energy of the country's best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today's most outstanding choreographers. Ailey II began in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, when Alvin Ailey initiated a workshop composed of the most promising scholarship students from The Ailey School.
The Company, which emphasizes a balance of repertoire, technique and performance, has become one of the most popular dance companies in the United States. Under the direction of Sylvia Waters, Ailey II invigorates the American dance scene by offering unique opportunities for artists.
In recent years, Ailey II's distinctive repertory has included works by dance masters Alvin Ailey and Talley Beatty, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Artistic Director Judith Jamison and such innovative choreographers as Donald Byrd, Shapiro & Smith, Shen Wei, Avila/Weeks, Lar Lubovitch, Kevin Wynn and Ulysses Dove.
