Francesca Harper, the artistic director of Ailey II, will be a special guest. In an intimate hour-long conversation, Harper will talk about the legacy that shaped her as a young artist while her mother and mentor, Denise Jefferson, was director at The Ailey School—and shares how she has been paving the path to a bright new future for the next generation of dancers at Ailey II.
