This is one of the best dance studios/schools in the area. I had the privilege of doing a performance here and the staff and building were great. I would recommend any dance enthusiast to take a class or here or just go by to see a show.

Took a Salsa class here... Teacher was entertaining and informative. The variety of dance disciplines to learn is great and they also teach capoura. Studio was well lit and clean...definitely would take a class here again.

When I saw the posters of Alvin Ailey I realized I was familiar with them. But I never knew they gave dance lessons. I took a free class with Google for salsa. We learned the basic steps and learned how to style our dance. One hour went by fast and we left the class knowing a routine.

One of the icons of New York City, this dance company continues to impress. I had attended their anniversary performances several years ago, but recently attended my first class. I say first because I hope I get to return since their instructors are so friendly, patient and talented. The teacher took us through the basics of Salsa dancing, what separates from other dances like the Merengue and played some great music by Tito Puente. Definitely take a look at their weekly classes and you can even organize a private class with your friends!

This is THE dance studio to learn or perfect your dance moves. In addition to dance classes ranging in all levels and workshops they also offer fitness classes. I went to a beginner salsa taught by Joey. Did you know there are several forms of salsa? Yes, like 7 :) He taught us NY style salsa which is a lot harder than I would think. After getting the basics down, you are split into 2 groups and you rotate partners practicing all of the moves you learned. Fun, hardcore, intricate foot work, and Joey is no joke!

I went to a salsa class at Alvin Alley American Dance Theater named after the famous dancer Alvin Alley, who died at a very young age. There are many different dance classes at different levels. The beginners class taught by Joe was wonderful. The instructor Joe was very thorough and took his time to explain every step. After class, you will be ready to go out to the clubs dancing.

Alvin Ailey is phenomenal. I love the performances. The energy, the art, the music. All makes it the best show to take your mind away from it all. Love Alvin Ailey!

A fan from when Jamison danced "Cry" I was hooked . What makes this dance conmpany stand out is it's ability to dig in the global-collective soul and bring to dance our past and our present. And they do this with the permission of the undying sprit.

I cannot get enough of Tweet Boogie's hip hop class. Its so much fun and it helps keep me healthy. I also love the beginner West African, Samba and House classes.

There is something for everyone at Ailey. It's a great welcoming environment. If you've been thinking about it, do it! You won't regret it!

I have been going for years now - West African with Maguette Camara and Sabar with Babacar M'Baye. I love, love, love my teachers. Ailey Extension is my most favorite place!!

I took class here on 2 occasions while on vacation. Great ballet classes! Just not very clear on the procedure for people who are not familiar with the studio.

I took an Advanced Beg Horton class on Saturday afternoon with Karen Arceneaux. She was fabulous -- she has the perfect attitude for a class with wide-ranging skill and levels. She never made me feel badly about not doing something perfectly, yet she always wanted us to strive to do our best. I would go back next time I'm in town. Love the studio too. Everyone was nice. It was clean and lovely. Only one downer -- they need towel service for a small fee or at least paper towels in the dressing room. I was going out to dinner/show after and would've liked to clean up better. Other than that, it was a perfect experience!

I took my first class at the extension for All Styles Vogue with Cesar Valentino - I loved the boutique class size (ours was about 10 people) which was great and was enough space to spread out and learn. Cesar made the experience of jumping into a new dance style fun, and super accessible to picking up. Each week features fresh new choreography to learn so I'm def excited to come back soon! Totally worth it, and beautiful studio space!

I've had nothing but great experiences here. The facilities are really lovely, and my teacher (Vic DiMonda, theater dance) is great! Professional yet fun classes, at a great rate (with a discount for performing arts professionals!)

I would highly recommend checking out a class here.

Amazing dancers~! Just go, you won't be disappointed by their performances. Try to sit still in the audience chair.....Control yourself, remember this, you're not the dancer.

I regret I took a flight all the way to Frankfurt to see the performance! I live in Bulgaria, I bought a plane ticket, I booked a hotel and I paid 96 Euro for a ticket only to see something that would be perfect to entertain Barack Obama after Sunday mass in church. It was also pretty decent for a family show in Vegas. But this performance had nothing to do with the fantastic photos one can see of the Alvin Ailey amazing jumps. They did not jump at all! Do they use separate jumpers for the photos and the deceiving photos? They did not fly, like on photos - it was more like walking on the stage. The performance was rather mediocre and it was not modern ballet, it was not contemporary, it was nothing.

The difficulty of the performance, rated from 1 to 10, was clearly 1,5.

I saw great looking dancers showing something so simple, it was an insult. Still, I give the show 2 stars, as the moves of the dancers were impeccable.

However, I will never spend another penny more on Alvin Ailey performance even if they come to Bulgaria.

My daughter has been waiting to dance at this Prestigious School for many years. A beautiful 6 Story Facility on the West Side of Manhattan. Wheelchair accessible ramp and entrance. The lobby is modern and clean with photos of the Staff and Founder. Security stand in the front and Box Office downstairs. Clean restrooms in every floor. Tours of the facility are available. Looking forward to going back.

I saw the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater at the gorgeous City Center and it was a thing of sublime beauty.

This was my first time and what a way to become indoctrinated into the world of dance theater!

To start was Gustavo Ramirez Sansano's "Victoria" instead of the standard fare, much to the dismay of the elderly patrons. I LOVED IT! I particularly loved the music "Rewriting Beethoven's Seventh Symphony". Written by award-winning composer Michael Gordon, it was an avant-garde, seamlessly morphing piece that relentlessly drove the dancers throughout the mesmerizing first act.

The second was "Members Don't Get Weary". It was much more traditional so I'm sure the old biddies loved it, but honestly it was the more forgettable of the three for me.

The third act, "Stack-Up" choreographed by Talley Beatty, KILLED IT DEAD. I almost got up out of my seat to dance when the disco music started ahead of the dancers taking the stage. B-boys/girls, disco divas and some fabulous silver lamรจ pants... I don't know how they stretched like they did. It's like someone made it special just for Gen-X. It's our time dammit!

What a finale! I didn't want it to end! I can't stop gushing about it. If this is the future of Alvin Ailey then it's in wonderful hands. I want to do this again next year!

We have been taking private group classes and tours here for the past 7 years. The old group services coordinator, Kristen, was amazing, howevee their new coordinator, Selena Campbell, is a NIGHTMARE. She is never available during her office hours and doesn't return phone calls. We arrived for our private master class and tour which had been paid in full only to be told she did not make arrangements for the tour. Ailey is a highlight of our trip and this girls casts a negative light on an outstanding legacy. We will not be returning in years to come if she is in charge of groups.

Thank you for coming back to Charlotte, NC! I'm 31 years old now and I cried last night after seeing another amazing performance by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. You inspired me for the first time when I was 13 years old when Ailey II came to my small town in Beaufort, SC. Here I am years later, a dance educator for my own company, MufukaWorks, Charlotte Ballet teaching artist, and able to teach dance in public school all day and all students. It will be my dream to pass on the touch to another dancer just like you did for me. Amazing performance and just loved to see the work of a new choreographer to me Kyle Abraham. Come back to Charlotte, NC every year and keep coming to those small towns around us too. You have our support!

The staff must have been trained in hospitality, because I felt like I was staying at a five star hotel. Campus is clean and structure is sturdy. There were no cracks in the wall or banana peels on the floor. Also worth noting that the students are the most shapely and conditioned in the entire city.

Wonderful intro salsa class taught by an incredible woman from the Baila Society - half footwork and half partner dancing. Has made me more comfortable going to Latin dance clubs/bars across the city.

The West African Dance class on Monday evenings is simply extraordinary. I have never loved every minute of a dance class in the quite a few years. It gives me LIFE and restores my faith in humanity.

The studio is perfect and quite frankly beautiful.

However, they are quite uncooperative. I had booked a class and due to heavy rains the public transport was broken. The refused to accommodate or extend even with a fee. Please work on your customer service skills.

I took the Beginner West African Dance. The instructor was amazingly patient, talented, and energetic. The live-music, drummers, brought a joy to me that I can't describe. Overall the dance class was a wonderful experience. The staff too were very welcoming and very helpful in identifying other classes and opportunities I would be interested in. (The registration process was very smooth and easy as well)
