Established in 1974, the company embodies Mr. Ailey’s pioneering mission to create an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people. Ailey II continues to thrive under the artistic direction of Troy Powell who brings a “fresh dimension” to the beloved company. With its distinctive repertory, Ailey II presents exhilarating performances by dance masters such as Alvin Ailey, Donald Byrd, George W. Faison, Lar Lubovitch, Judith Jamison (former artistic director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater) and Robert Battle (current artistic director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater).  www.alvinailey.org
