19febAll Day21Ailey Experience AtlantaPresented in Partnership with Destination Dance

Event Details

Ailey Experience Atlanta celebrates over forty years of a rich partnership with the city’s most prominent arts and civic organizations. This year, we are proud to team up with AREA Atlanta to bring Ailey Experience online to the greater Atlanta area and across the country.

The Ailey Experience workshop series is designed to expand on Alvin Ailey’s life-long commitment to give dance back to the people by making dance accessible to everyone. The workshops give dancers the opportunity to study with prominent dancers in the field—this year all classes will be taught by leading company members of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Ailey Experience embodies the diversity of the Ailey dancer with technique classes in Horton, contemporary, and West African, while introducing dancers to an exciting world of choreography, creativity, and fun in a non-competitive environment. Participants will also learn the rich history of Ailey’s signature style and how he changed the perception of American modern dance.

All levels are welcome, no prior dance experience required.

You can email aileyextension@alvinailey.org with any questions.
