Ailey II

A certain level of excellence is always expected and delivered when attending an Alvin Ailey production. The school’s reputation began with founder Alvin Ailey’s 1958  inaugural company and has been continued through the first (Alvin Ailey) and second (Ailey II). Last Friday (Apr 4), I had the pleasure of watching three new pieces by Ailey II at the Ailey Citigroup Theatre– Alchemies, Cuore Sott’olio, and Wings.

Seated inside a quaint theatre, the show’s attention grabbing feats and skill driven combinations met my eminent presumptions in just under two hours.
