When Ashley Mayeux joined Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater last summer after four years with Complexions Contemporary Ballet, she was already a versatile mover accustomed to a demanding schedule. But the career move came with challenges.
This season, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater welcomes three new company members to its mix. One is the first former AileyCamper to make it into the company. Another will set aside her beloved pointe shoes for a coveted spot. And the third? She has two young children, but she can't get dancing out of her system.
