Alvin Ailey, born in Rogers, Texas on January 5, 1931 was a great example of “ modern dance”. Ailey founded his dance company “The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater” in 1958; after his death in 1989 his Artistic Director , Judith Jamison, led the company and his works throughout the world and kept the message of his performances alive on the AAADT. The academy targets on students with academic, social and domestic challenges, which is the reason of many children leaving school, but also welcomes students who have little opportunity to develop their artistic interests.
