Ailey Camp Members Get Fifth Grade Students Moving!

Dancing the Day Away at BSA!

On January 21, 2020 fifth grade students at Brenda Scott Academy took part in an amazing assembly with members of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Foundation. Our dance teacher, Ms. Bryan is a graduate of the Ailey School.  "I hope this will encourage students to participate in this amazing summer program, involving dance training, music, creative writing, personal development, and communication workshops to help campers develop greater confidence and respect  for themselves and others, appreciation and understanding of the Fine Arts, and hopefully, interest in our various conservatory programs at BSA. I am quite excited, as this is my alma mater, and it will be the first year that AileyCamp will be coming to Detroit, Michigan!"  Judging by their enthusiasm, I believe some of our students will be dancing their Summer away!
