“There's nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II - New York Times”
Following the great success of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 2019 at the Luxor Theater Rotterdam, we are proud to present Ailey II. To be seen exclusively at the Holland Dance Festival in 2024! Ailey II is universally known for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s finest young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers.
Founded in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, the company embodies its pioneering mission to create an expanded cultural community through its dance performances. Ailey II has become one of the most popular modern dance companies, combining a rigorous touring schedule with extensive community outreach programs. Dance Magazine calls Ailey II “Second to none,” and The New York Times declares, “There is nothing like an evening with Ailey II, the younger version of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.”
Holland Dance Festival is the only international dance biennial in the Netherlands
Our mission is to make dance accessible to everyone. Dance inspires and that is why we are so passionate about our work. The next Holland Dance Festival edition will take place in January and February 2024. Once again, the festival promises to be a rich sampling of the most internationally significant and high-profile dance productions.
