The site is very informative about the group and includes a video clip, the tour schedule, the educational outreach programs, and several biographies of key people in the Company such as Alvin Ailey, Judith Jamison, and Masazumi Chaya.

The biographies of Alvin Ailey and Judith Jamison are good and are one

Company also does arts education outreach.
