Ailey Arts In Education & Community Programs

Join Rachel Watson-Jih, Ailey Arts In Education Teaching Artist, for a series of fun video workshops that will help build fundamental dance vocabulary in jazz/hip-hop style. The Ailey technique-based approach to dance education provides a safe physical and emotional creative outlet for students of all ages and backgrounds. Students are encouraged to practice imagination, resilience and joy while learning dance vocabulary and dynamic original choreography from the safety of their home or socially-distanced classroom. Ailey Arts In Education remains committed to providing quality dance education content and empowering students to take, make and see dance - through whatever means possible.


“Making dances is an act of progress; it is an act of growth, an act of music, an act of teaching, an act of celebration, an act of joy.”


- Alvin Ailey
