Job Description:

About AileyCamp Miami 2022:
 
June 27 - August 6, 2022
 
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 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.

Background:

Set in the heart of downtown Miami, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is committed to welcoming and connecting ALL people to the arts, to the Arsht Center, and to each other. Since opening in 2006, the Arsht Center, a 501C3 non-profit organization, has been a catalyst for billions of dollars in new development in the downtown area, a leader in programming that mirrors South Florida’s diversity, a host venue for historic events and Miami’s hub for arts education.
 
Each year, we serve more than 50,000 young learners and offer more than 100 culturally diverse and inclusive education programs. Our 300+ annual events include our Knight Masterworks Classical Music series featuring magnificent orchestras and soloists from around the world; the very best musicals direct from New York for Broadway in Miami; Jazz Roots, the largest jazz series in South Florida; our award-winning, Miami-made Theater Up Close program; Flamenco Festival Miami; brilliant work from our many Arts Partners and local artists, and much more.
 
The Arsht Center is a home stage for three resident companies - Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet, and New World Symphony - and a launchpad for local artists to make their mark on the international stage. In addition, our Family Fest, Free Gospel Sundays, Communi-Tea LGBTQ+ celebration, and Heritage Fest are among dozens of free activities that bring together people from all corners of our community.
