Ailey II—the next generation of dance—is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best early-career dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s outstanding and emerging choreographers. Bringing their "off-the-charts-energy” (The New Yorker) to the stage, the company will perform two stunning programs this season, featuring choreography by Ailey II Artistic Director Francesca Harper, Ailey Artistic Director Robert Battle, William Forsythe, Andrea Miller, Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish and Alvin Ailey.

Poetic Motion is dedicated to the heart of the creative process and the poetry that lives in the mind of an artist. Featuring a new work, new production and two extended audience favorites, Poetic Motion highlights the full breadth of Ailey II’s expression that features the sensitivity of Alvin Ailey, the athleticism of Robert Battle, the audacity of William Forsythe and the innovative mind of Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish.

Empowered is a program designed to leave the audience on the edge of their seats. From the cinematic wonderment of Andrea Miller, to the daring physicality of William Forsythe, to the Afro-futuristic lens of Francesca Harper, the unexpected twists and turns will take audiences on an evocative journey that is sure to awaken curiosity and encourage valiance.
