    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    56%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    The Ailey School graduation rate is above the national average.

    56% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to The Ailey School completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

      We have been taking private group classes and tours here for the past 7 years. The old group services coordinator, Kristen, was amazing, howevee their new coordinator, Selena Campbell, is a NIGHTMARE. She is never available during her office hours and doesn't return phone calls. We arrived for our private master class and tour which had been paid in full only to be told she did not make arrangements for the tour. Ailey is a highlight of our trip and this girls casts a negative light on an outstanding legacy. We will not be returning in years to come if she is in charge of groups.

      I saw the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater at the gorgeous City Center and it was a thing of sublime beauty.This was my first time and what a way to become indoctrinated into the world of dance theater! To start was Gustavo Ramirez Sansano's "Victoria" instead of the standard fare, much to the dismay of the elderly patrons. I LOVED IT! I particularly loved the music "Rewriting Beethoven's Seventh Symphony". Written by award-winning composer Michael Gordon, it was an avant-garde, seamlessly morphing piece that relentlessly drove the dancers throughout the mesmerizing first act.The second was "Members Don't Get Weary". It was much more traditional so I'm sure the old biddies loved it, but honestly it was the more forgettable of the three for me.The third act, "Stack-Up" choreographed by Talley Beatty, KILLED IT DEAD. I almost got up out of my seat to dance when the disco music started ahead of the dancers taking the stage. B-boys/girls, disco divas and some fabulous silver lamè pants... I don't know how they stretched like they did. It's like someone made it special just for Gen-X. It's our time dammit! What a finale! I didn't want it to end! I can't stop gushing about it. If this is the future of Alvin Ailey then it's in wonderful hands. I want to do this again next year!

      My daughter has been waiting to dance at this Prestigious School for many years. A beautiful 6 Story Facility on the West Side of Manhattan. Wheelchair accessible ramp and entrance. The lobby is modern and clean with photos of the Staff and Founder. Security stand in the front and Box Office downstairs. Clean restrooms in every floor. Tours of the facility are available. Looking forward to going back.

      I regret I took a flight all the way to Frankfurt to see the performance! I live in Bulgaria, I bought a plane ticket, I booked a hotel and I paid 96 Euro for a ticket only to see something that would be perfect to entertain Barack Obama after Sunday mass in church. It was also pretty decent for a family show in Vegas. But this performance had nothing to do with the fantastic photos one can see of the Alvin Ailey amazing jumps. They did not jump at all! Do they use separate jumpers for the photos and the deceiving photos? They did not fly, like on photos - it was more like walking on the stage. The performance was rather mediocre and it was not modern ballet, it was not contemporary, it was nothing. The difficulty of the performance, rated from 1 to 10, was clearly 1,5. I saw great looking dancers showing something so simple, it was an insult. Still, I give the show 2 stars, as the moves of the dancers were impeccable. However, I will never spend another penny more on Alvin Ailey performance even if they come to Bulgaria.
