Hope Boykin was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, and was a three-time recipient of the American Dance Festival's Young Tuition Scholarship. She attended Howard University in Washington, DC., when she felt a call to move to New York City to study at The Ailey School. Hope worked as assistant to choreographers Milton Myers and the late Talley Beatty, was an original member of Complexions, and danced many years with Philadanco, The Philadelphia Dance Company. Hope joined The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 2000, where she continues to perform her duties as a dancer as well as her work as an educator, mentor, speaker, and choreographer. Hope is a dear friend of the Festival and we are thrilled to have her join us again for another inspirational master class. To learn more about Ms. Boykin please visit www.hopeboykindance.com.
