Ailey II is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s finest early-career dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding and emerging choreographers.

Founded by Alvin Ailey, the company embodies his pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people. Since its 1974 inception, Ailey II has become one of the most popular modern dance companies, combining a rigorous touring schedule with extensive community-outreach programs. With artistic director Francesca Harper at the helm, Ailey II continues to thrive as she brings a fresh dimension to this beloved company. 

Dance Magazine calls Ailey II “second to none,” and The New York Times declares, “There’s nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II, the younger version of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.”

Join us at 7 p.m. in the Peacock Education Center of the Knight Concert Hall for a pre-show conversation with Ailey II artistic director Francesca Harper and Miami's Peter London.
