ABOUT & INSTRUCTORS

 

ABOUT

AREA is proud to host its 4rd year of presenting Ailey Experience/ATL!

This workshop is designed to expand on Alvin Ailey life-long commitment to bringing dance to the people. The Ailey Experience workshop gives dancers the opportunity to study with leading instructors and former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company members. Students will learn the rich history of Ailey’s signature style and how he changed the perception of American modern dance.

Join us for two days of classes with live accompanists and an in-depth study of Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations and Ailey Classics. These works feature classic blues, gospel, and traditional spirituals that are essential to Mr. Ailey’s work.

No experience necessary and all levels are welcomed!

Full Workshop includes:

  • Study how Mr. Ailey shared his life stories through dance
  • Chance to win a scholarship to Ailey Experience Summer Workshop in NYC
  • Ailey souvenir

INSTRUCTORS

  • Levi Marsman (Contemporary)
