Following the great success of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 2019, we present Ailey II. To be seen exclusively at the Holland Dance Festival in 2024! Ailey II is universally known for merging the spirit and energy of the country's finest young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today's most outstanding emerging choreographers. 

There’s nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II

The New York Times

Founded in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, the company embodies its pioneering mission to create an expanded cultural community through its dance performances. Ailey II has become one of the most popular modern dance companies, combining a rigorous touring schedule with extensive community outreach programs. Dance Magazine calls Ailey II "Unparalleled" and The New York Times declares, "There is nothing like an evening with Ailey II, the younger version of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater."

The virtuoso and versatile Ailey II dancers bring an infectious and highly varied performance to the stage including Revelations. The work has become a "cultural icon" and Robert Battle even labels it "the eighth wonder of the world. 'No matter how much dancers have developed technically in recent years and how complex today's dance language is, the response we get to Revelations still surpasses everything. Pure, genuine joy, the excitement of the audience, truly unimaginable.
