Save the Date! Monday, April 17, 2023

2022 DJ scholarWe invite you to save the date for the annual Ailey/Fordham BFA in Dance benefit concert, Monday, April 17, 2023 at Ailey Citigroup Theater.

Each year, more than 200 alumni, parents, friends, and guests of the Ailey School and Fordham University gather to celebrate and watch our talented student-dancers perform. All proceeds benefit the Denise Jefferson Memorial Scholarship Fund, an artistic merit scholarship that supports two students, a junior and a senior, in the Ailey/Fordham program every year.

For more information about the Ailey/Fordham BFA program please contact Michelle Clarkin, Senior Director of Development, Arts and Sciences at [email protected].

Meet the Denise Jefferson Memorial Scholars.
