MARQUETTE – Ailey II, an offshoot of the world-famous Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, at Kaufman Auditorium in Marquette. The performance is the next event in the Northern Michigan University Performing Art Series for 2002-03.

The company emphasizes a balance of repertoire, technique and performance. More than 30 members have been selected to join the larger Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Many others have gone on to pursue successful careers as dancers, teachers and choreographers with other professional dance companies, on Broadway and in schools.
