    The Ailey School's Pre-Professional Training Program offers two programs to young dancers 7-17 years old to learn from our experienced and distiguished faculty. Dancers ages 7 to 17 participate in a diverse dance curriculum. High School students ages 15-17 who show the highest potential for a career in dance have the opportunity to participate in the year-round Scholarship Program.

    The Pre-Professional Program offers a diverse curriculum-based program for students ages 7 to 17 taught by The Ailey School’s experienced and distinguished faculty. Designed to develop well-rounded young dancers, the Program offers a graded curriculum of classical ballet, enriched by several other dance techniques including modern, West African, Spanish, tap and character.

    The Scholarship Program is a training program for high school students ages 15 to 17 who show the highest potential for a career in dance. This prestigious program provides financial assistance to gifted intermediate and advanced level high school students who attend part-time during the school year and full-time during the summer. Scholarship students also have the opportunity to gain a variety of administrative skills by working in The Ailey School or Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation offices in exchange for their scholarships.
