The Ailey Intensive was a partnership project initiated by Dance Consortium and coordinated by DanceEast in 2016, to bring Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to Centre for Advanced Training students within an educative context, whilst the company were on national tour at venues throughout the UK.

The Ailey Intensive was a four day intensive crafted to share the founding beliefs and vision of the company, providing in depth history about the Ailey organisation and its founder Alvin Ailey, giving students an opportunity to learn classic Ailey repertoire as well as provide a platform for the participants to express themselves choreographically.
