After a decade, the world-renowned dancers Alvin Ailey's II, the next generation of dance, will grace the stage at Patriot Hall in Sumter for a performance of a lifetime.The Millican Literary Foundation proudly presents Ailey II at Patriot Hall (135 Haynsworth Street) in Sumter, SC, Tuesday, October 16, 2018. Don't miss this grand performance.
There's nothing like the thrill of discovering a new favorite artist or being the first to see new work by acclaimed choreographers. Ailey II gives you both: a company of 12 on their-way-to-the-top dancers and a repertory of works by emerging talents fresh out of the rehearsal room.
Handpicked by artistic director Troy Powell, the Ailey II dancers travel year-round to share their "off-the-charts energy" (The New Yorker) with audiences around the world – with a tour schedule unlike any other second company. See why The New York Times says, "There's nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II" as they perform new works and returning classics.
