The Ailey/Fordham Student Dancers (AFSD), established in 2003, perform a unique and exciting repertoire of works from emerging and established choreographers. The group is comprised of students enrolled in The Ailey/Fordham Bachelor of Fine Arts Program and The Ailey School’s Professional Division. These students, who come from all over the world to train and perfect their craft, spend their senior year touring with AFSD, giving 8-12 outreach performances annually in the tri-state area. Trained in the Ailey-style of dance, students are performing works that integrate Ballet, Horton, Graham-based modern, Jazz, West-African, Dunham technique, and Hip-Hop to present fresh inspiring works.
