What The Critics Are Saying about Ailey II’s 2013 New York Season Running Through March 24th:

 

“…amazing young dancers giving their all to choreography…” – The New York Times, Brian Siebert – March 17, 2013

 

“Tall, lean Gentry George, part of the new crop, briefly shows off his line in a more introspective section, but then all the men take off their shirts, so everyone goes home happyVirtues showcases the dancing Ailey II does best — full-out and feel-good.”  -The New York Post, Leigh Witchel – March 15, 2013

 

“…there’s enough budding talent here to draw old hands like Chita Rivera and Carmen de Lavallade to check them out…”  -The New York Post, Leigh Witchel – March 15, 2013
