Ailey II began in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble when choreographer Alvin Ailey initiated a workshop composed of the most promising scholarship students from the Ailey School in New York City. Ailey handpicked the original members of the Company from among that group.

Ailey II embodies Alvin Ailey’s pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people. Today, it has become one of the most popular dance companies in the United States.
