About the Event


This workshop is designed to expand on Alvin Ailey life-long commitment to give dance back to the people by making dance accessible to everyone. The Ailey Experience workshop gives dancers the opportunity to study with leading Ailey 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 a weekend of technique classes with live accompanists and an in-depth study of Alvin Ailey’s choreography. These masterpieces include classic blues, gospel, traditional spirituals,and jazz songs that are essential to Mr. Ailey’s work. No experience necessary and all levels are welcomed!
