Atlanta Ballet’s AileyCamp
In 2014, Centre Dance was proud to include our newest program, Atlanta Ballet’s AileyCamp in partnership with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, which serves 100 middle school children during a six-week period at no cost to the families each summer. Atlanta Ballet's AileyCamp is a summer day camp where pre-teens from underserved communities 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 increase their leadership skills and enjoy a variety of social activities. Please review the dates below and submit the application by the deadline in order to be considered for an interview as part of the selection process.
