Overview

“Second to none,” according to Dance magazine, Ailey II has been pushing the limits of contemporary modern dance since 1974. The younger company in the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater family, this extraordinary troupe continues in the groundbreaking tradition of its namesake with a return to The Eccles stage on Feb 24 and 25. The late Alvin Ailey himself called his work, “Revelations”... “blood history.” And, as PCI executive director Teri Orr puts it, “You cannot watch that powerful, exhausting, beautiful piece filled with gospel music and not feel like you have been both schooled and churched.” The company, known as “America’s dance company” was a critical part of the Eccles opening season in 1998 and has continued to evolve and return to the Park City stage with new works and exquisite soul-touching movement over the past two decades.
