Ailey Day

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join us for the 15th annual Ailey Day celebration at NJPAC! This full day of immersion into dance includes a variety of FREE movement classes taught by this year’s talented group of professional artists, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater alumni, and faculty and students.

Dancers at all skill levels are invited to take part — you can take your first steps into dance performance, or show off the moves you already have, at this joyful event. In addition to the classes, you’re invited to join us for a group warm up session, and a panel discussion with our visiting instructors. When you aren’t dancing, join our engaged partners for arts and wellness activities, including children’s book readings, health screenings, and mosaic art making. At the end of the day, you’re invited to demonstrate what you’ve learned, and see performances by a cohort of local dance companies at the Show & Share.

Discounted tickets for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s May 12+13 performances will be available for sale.
