About AileyCamp Miami 2017
Now in its 9th year, AileyCamp Miami is a 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 Miami is a full scholarship six-week summer camp for Miami-Dade County Public Middle School students currently enrolled in 6th, 7th, 8th grade ages 11 to 14.

As the focal point of performing arts activity in South Florida, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County serves as a showcase for the finest in established and developing performing arts programs. The Center is the foundation on which established resident organizations build their programs and extend their reach. The Center also serves as a laboratory, providing first class accessible facilities for smaller, emerging and developing organizations and for the Center’s own innovative productions and events.

As an educational resource, the Center broadens the horizons of our children and enhances our quality of life by offering a full range of cultural learning experiences.
