AileyCamp is an innovative summer program for youth ages 11-14 that

develop a respect for themselves and others that meaningfully

everybody” and was especially dedicated to using dance to enhance
the lives of underserved children. AileyCamp represents a vital

enrich and positively alter the lives of children. Conceived by
