Ailey II, the second company of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, returns to the Ailey Citigroup Theater in New York City on April 2-13 for a triumphant 40th anniversary season led by Artistic Director Troy Powell. 

For two weeks, audiences can enjoy two dynamic programs, one introducing new works such as the premiere of Adam Barruch’s Alchemies and one highlighting returning favorites such as the restaging of Alvin Ailey’s 1970 work Streams.

The company’s New York season comes on the heels of a successful North American tour to over 30 cities and an array of performances in Germany and France.
