The Englert and Nolte Academy are proud to present Ailey II, the next generation of top dancers, live on Sunday, November 4 at 6 p.m.
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.
Started in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, Ailey II embodies Alvin Ailey’s pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people.
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 – with a tour schedule unlike any other second company. See why the New York Times says, “There’s nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II” as they perform new works and returning classics.
