Memory Brown Audio Diary

Kansas City, Missouri – Ailey Camp, sponsored by the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater here in Kansas City, just began its 17th summer session.

Ailey Camp is 6 weeks of dance, creative arts, and personal development classes for middle schoolers from the metropolitan area - some high-risk, some privileged.

The program has been so successful it's been replicated in several cities across the country.

Today, we begin an occasional series - a profile of one Ailey camper.
