The Ailey Extension , a beacon of dance and fitness for a diverse array of people in New York City and beyond, kicked off its 10th Anniversary celebration in April. The festivities continue in May with two special Mother’s Day Classes, a new West African Dance class, and more.
Each class teaches the rich legacy of traditional African dance, accompanied by master drummers. Classes start with a thorough warm-up, followed by a sequence of movements across the floor. This high-spirited, high-powered rhythmic dance experience is for anyone who loves to dance.
