Cal Performances is seeking an Associate Director of AileyCamp to work for AileyCamp from February  2022 to August, 2022.

Cal Performances presents and produces outstanding artists from the Bay Area, the United States, and around the world in performances and community programs that promote excellence, innovation, diversity, education, and community involvement, with the fundamental belief that the arts are vital to our society locally, nationally, and internationally.  

AileyCamp is a nationally proven arts education program that uses dance as a vehicle for developing self-esteem, creative expression, and critical thinking skills among 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students (aged 11-14) who are at risk of dropping out of school.  AileyCamp also provides exceptional dance training to middle school students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.  The project was inspired by the work of the late Alvin Ailey, internationally renowned dance artist, choreographer, and founder of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.

The Associate Director of AileyCamp reports to the Manager, Education and Community Programs and works in close partnership with the AileyCamp Director, providing administrative management and staff supervision, ensuring curriculum in compliance with National AileyCamp goals and Cal Performances educational philosophy, and creating an environment for creativity and personal development through dance that supports middle school youth.  With the AileyCamp Director, the incumbent supervises a cohort of instructors: Dance Instructors, Personal Development and Creative Communications Instructors, as well as the Group Leaders (with the Group Leader Mentor), Administrative Assistant(s), and other technical, production and administrative staff necessary to create a final showcase of the students’ work on July 28, 2022. The AileyCamp Leadership team also includes support as needed from the Education department staff.
