New York-based modern dance company AILEY II was formed in 1974 as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre studio involving the most talented young dancers from Ailey school. Alvin Ailey (1931–1989), a legendary African-American dancer and choreographer, the founder of the aforementioned dance theatre (1958), is now and then dubbed a revolutionary of the 20th-century modern dance. Today AILEY II is one of the leading American dance companies merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding choreographers (Alvin Ailey, Talley Beatty, George Faison, Lar Lubovitch, Robert Battle, Kyle Abraham, Thang Dao, etc.).
