Berkeley/Oakland AileyCamp is a joyful and rigorous six-week program free to selected youth ages 11–14.
AileyCamp’s talented staff and teaching artists offer campers classes in African dance, Ballet, Jazz, Modern Dance, Creative Communication, and Personal Development, as well as a variety of field trips, guest workshops, and special events. Camp culminates in a performance that showcases campers’ accomplishments before an audience of hundreds in Zellerbach Hall.
AileyCamp provides a supportive community where young people can connect meaningfully with each other and with caring adults, express themselves creatively, and experience the transformative power of dance.
