Friends of Alvin Ailey

We need the vision of Alvin Ailey now more than ever.

During this time when we are unable to join you in the theater, we are instead sharing the joy of dance through online programs open to the public and a continued commitment to dance education.  

Your annual gift helps Ailey fulfill its mission of bringing dance back to the people by sustaining the organization during this critical time.  

Thank you for being part of spreading Ailey’s inspiring message.
