"Our breathtaking new building, designed by Iu + Bibliowicz Architects, is a glorious home for the Company, Ailey II, The Ailey School and all of our diverse educational programs," stated Artistic Director Emerita Judith Jamison.  "I am so grateful to everyone who helped realize this long-time dream, particularly Joan and Sandy Weill for their extraordinary commitment to Ailey."

"We have arrived at this moment in Ailey's history thanks to the artistry and vision of Judith Jamison and this dance center is a testament to her exceptional leadership," acknowledged Joan Weill.  "We are deeply grateful to Mayor Bloomberg and to the City Council for their outstanding support and for recognizing the importance of the Ailey organization to the cultural fabric of New York City."
