(New York) May 31, 2019 – Pioneering dancer, choreographer, founder, and LGBT icon Alvin Ailey will forever be remembered for taking a stand for equality, shining a spotlight on social justice, using his artistry to open hearts and minds around the world, and creating a safe space for other artists of all backgrounds to share their stories. Mr. Ailey said, “to be who you are and become what you are capable of is the only goal worth living." Carrying forward his revolutionary legacy, the Ailey organization celebrates Pride Month 2019 with an array of inspiring activities that will bring audiences to their feet and into the studios, including special performances during Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Lincoln Center engagement (June 12-16) and two Pride workshops for all movers at Ailey Extension.
Since 2005, the Ailey Extension has offered "real classes for real people." With more than 80 classes a week in over 25 different dance and fitness techniques, there's something for everyone at any experience level (ages 16 and up).
