Ailey II’s “indefatigable, virtuosic, and relentlessly sexy” dancers (Los Angeles Times) return to The Joyce Theater from March 17 – 22 with two programs of premieres and recent audience favorites. The Company’s spring run at The Joyce will be the first time they will present an independent season at one of dance’s most cherished and historic venues.
