October 20: 'AILEY II' at the Rialto Center for the Arts (VIDEO)

Ailey II

Ailey II returns for a second year to Atlanta's historic Rialto Center for the Arts on Saturday, October 20 at 8 p.m. 

Ailey II is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country's best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today's most outstanding emerging choreographers. One of the most popular dance companies in the country, Ailey II combines a rigorous touring schedule with extensive community outreach programs.

“This is a special year for the Ailey organization,” says Ailey II Artistic Director Troy Powell. “As the second company joins in Ailey’s 60th Anniversary celebration, it seems only fitting to bring in works by choreographers from the Ailey family – Uri Sands, Bradley Shelver, Ailey Artistic Director Robert Battle, and myself.”
