If your child falls in this category of kids ''eligible'' for the camp, I suppose you could contact Cal Performances on the Cal campus to find out more information about applying for the camp. Anon
AileyCamp is an intensive six-week day camp that Cal Performances provides tuition free to participating campers. The diverse programming offers several styles of dance class taught by Ailey-trained artists and professional local instructors, as well as classes in personal development and creative writing. In addition, students receive free meals and dance clothing, and Oakland students are provided free transportation to and from their neighborhoods. Students also participate in fun and engaging weekly field trips, in-class demonstrations by local artists, and a finale performance that showcases the campers' new talents.
