Alvin Ailey American Dance Center & School

Ailey "The versatility of an "Ailey Dancer" arises from the diverse curriculum taught at The School, which includes Horton and Graham-based modern, ballet, jazz and several other techniques along with dance academics and repertory workshops. Founded in 1969, and now under the direction of Denise Jefferson, The School offers professional training programs, open classes for adults and programs for children. The School currently offers a B.F.A. Program with New York City's Fordham University*, and has partnerships with The Actors Studio/New School and the Professional Performing Arts School."

Note: If you drop in for class, you should wear a black unitard. Almost everyone at the center adheres to this dress code.
