There's nothing like the thrill of discovering a new favorite artist or being the first to see new work by acclaimed choreographers. Ailey II gives you both: a company of 12 on their-way-to-the-top dancers and a repertory of works by emerging talents fresh out of the rehearsal room. Handpicked by artistic director Troy Powell, the Ailey II
dancers travel year-round to share their "off-the-charts energy" (The New Yorker
) with audiences around the world. You'll see premieres by Juel D. Lane, Renee I. McDonald and Darrell Grand Moultrie and returning audience favorites from last season by Jae Man Joo, Bridget L. Moore, and Marcus Jarrell Willis. See why The New York Times
says, "There's nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II" when they return home to perform at the intimate Ailey Citigroup Theater.
