Ailey/Fordham Concert to Benefit Dancers

Playful Vibes. Rushing into the Dream of the Night. Pulse Suspended. 

These are just a few of the pieces that will bring exquisite, exhilarating movement of bodies to Fordham’s Pope Auditorium next week, as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater/Fordham University BFA program stages its annual benefit performance.

Thursday, March 6
7 p.m.
Pope Auditorium, Lowenstein Center, Lincoln Center Building 

The benefit, which has been a tradition at the Lincoln Center campus since 2001, features performances from each class of Fordham/Ailey students. The dance performances are followed by a reception where dancers meet members of the Fordham community, including many of the benefactors who helped fund the scholarships that enable them to attend.

The BFA degree, a unique partnership between the world renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Ailey School, and Fordham, combines the finest in dance and liberal arts education in a four-year program. Students complete a diverse curriculum while attending both institutions full time.

For more information, contact Rodger Van Allen at (212) 636-6562 or visit the alumni website.
