We are absolutely thrilled for WAD alumni, Grace Bergonzi, who has been named one of the newest members of the esteemed Ailey II modern dance company in NYC.

Ailey II is universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers.
With Artistic Director Troy Powell at the helm, Ailey II continues to thrive as he brings a fresh dimension to this beloved company. Dance Magazine calls Ailey II “second to none,” and The New York Times declares, “There’s nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II, the younger version of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.”

As a member of this prestigious company, Ms. Bergonzi will perform in cities across the globe, including a New York City engagement at the Ailey Citigroup Theater in the spring.

We are so proud of everything Grace has accomplished and know that she will continue to soar among this talented and accomplished ensemble of dancers!
