From First Steps to the Ailey/Fordham BFA program --The Ailey School is training future generations of dancers. In keeping dance education affordable, School tuition covers only 80% of the actual expenses of The Ailey School.
Each year, the Ailey organization must raise more than $1.6M to cover the gap between expenses and tuition.
The Parents Annual Fund provides ongoing support for the School, enabling its vital programs to grow and flourish and ensuring that the next generation of dancers continues to receive high-caliber training, professional opportunities, and the support services necessary for success.
