About Ailey II
Ailey II is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers.
Founded in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, the company embodies his pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training, and community programs for all people.
Under the direction of Sylvia Waters from 1974 to 2012, Ailey II flourished into one of the most popular modern dance companies, combining a rigorous touring schedule with extensive community outreach programs.
With Artistic Director Troy Powell at the helm, Ailey II continues to thrive as he brings a fresh dimension to this beloved company. Dance Magazine calls Ailey II "second to none," and The New York Times declares, "There's nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II, the younger version of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater."
Ailey II's 2018–19 tour will reach audiences in dozens of cities across the globe and includes a New York season from March 13–17, 2019, at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

About DJ Kemit
DJ Kemit, once a member of the Grammy Award-winning Hip Hop group Arrested Development (AD), in now clearing his own path in music.
After his departure from AD, Kemit began the deep house group KemeticJust with long time friend and producer Justin Chapman. The duo are still active with a catalog of music that spans from King Street/Nite Grooves (NYC) to NDATL (ATL).
Kemit is also known as one of four DJs who produce the world renown House In The Park music series that takes place in Atlanta, Ga during Labor Day weekend.
With parties and productions that span the musical spectrum from afrobeat to hip hop, and deep house to salsa, it's fair to say that Kemit is a student of music.
