AileyCamp is an innovative summer program for youth ages 11-14 that uses disciplined dance training, creative writing instruction, personal development, and communication workshops to help campers develop a respect for themselves and others that meaningfully impacts their lives.

AileyCamp represents a vital continuation of Alvin Ailey’s vision, using the power of dance to enrich and positively alter the lives of children.
