Today, the group combines the spirit and energy of our nation’s best, young dancers with the passion and creative vision of today’s emerging choreographers to create unique and spectacular shows.
Each performance blends fresh, innovative choreography with stunningly disciplined dancers, to make Ailey II the company Dance Magazine calls “second to none.”$30 Orchestra, $25 Mezzanine and Front Balcony, $20 Back Balcony.
