New York, NY – March 17, 2021 – Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will continue to inspire audiences virtually with a spring series of free programs through Ailey All Access from March 17 – June 24. Using dance as a vehicle for joy and hope during a time of unprecedented challenges and separation, the presentations will advance the Ailey organization’s online initiatives that have inspired and enlightened over 12 million people in 121 countries over the past year, including a December holiday season featuring several dance film premieres.
Since 2005, Ailey Extension has offered "real classes for real people” exemplifying Alvin Ailey’s legacy that dance comes from the people and should be given back to the people. With more than 100 classes a week in over 25 different dance and fitness techniques, there's something for everyone at any experience level including workshops and weekly classes for adults (ages 16 and up) and workshops and drop-in classes for teens (ages 12-17) and children as young as 2 years old.
