Ailey Experience Tour 2020

"Dance is for everybody. I believe that dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people." - Alvin Ailey

Mr. Ailey's life-long commitment to bringing dance to the people is at the core of Ailey Experience.


The Ailey Experience workshops give dancers ages 8+ 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 in a city near you for two days of special classes with live accompanists and in-depth studies of Alvin Ailey’s classics with masterpieces such as Revelations, Blues Suite and Night Creature.
