About AileyCamp Miami 2020

June 22 – August 1, 2020

A six-week summer day camp where middle school students are “turned on” to dance and come to respect the discipline of dance as a physical activity that requires athletic ability comparable to skills demanded by any sport.  Also, campers will increase their leadership skills and enjoy a variety of social activities.  AileyCamp Miami is an innovative summer program designed to use dance as a vehicle for developing self-esteem, self-discipline, creative expression and critical thinking skills.  It does not serve as a training ground for professional dancers, but rather serves as a platform for self-growth. AileyCamp Miami serves Miami-Dade County Public Middle School students currently enrolled in 6th, 7th and 8th grade ages 11 to 14.

Basic Function

The Modern Dance Instructor will instruct 1-4 classes of modern daily in a classroom/studio setting for children ages 11-14 from diverse backgrounds. The Modern Dance Instructor will be an engaging instructor that can successfully introduce modern dance technique and terminology to non-dancers. Ideal candidate should have experience working with under resourced youth populations.
