About AileyCamp Miami 2019

June 24, 2019 - August 3, 2019

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 and designed by world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is one of the world’s leading performing arts organizations and venues. Spotlighting legends and serving as a launch pad for local artists to make their mark on the international stage, the Center presents nearly 500 events each year across its eight flexible, state-of-the-art performance spaces. The Center programs 12 signature series, including the largest jazz series in South Florida, the biggest flamenco festival on the East Coast, and a robust program of new theatrical works as well as free programming for the community and an arts education program that serves nearly 30,000 children each year. Since opening in 2006, the Arsht Center, a 501C3 non-profit organization, has emerged as a leader in presenting innovative programming that mirrors South Florida’s diversity as well as a catalyst for billions of dollars in new development in the downtown area. The Center includes the 2,200-seat Knight Concert Hall, the 2,400-seat Ziff Ballet Opera House, a 200-seat flexible space Carnival Studio Theater, and the 57,000-square- foot central Thomson Plaza for the Arts outdoor performance space.
