Summer Camp Uses Dance to Teach Students Life Skills

用舞蹈教学生生活技能的训练营

American Anai Espinoza is in the eighth grade. This summer, she took part in a summer dance program called AileyCamp. Each morning, she and other campers would say several phrases together. Her favorite is this: "I am in control."

美国学生阿奈·埃斯皮诺萨今年八年级。今年夏天,她参加了一个夏季舞蹈项目,叫作艾利训练营。每天早晨,她和其他营员会一起说几句话。她最喜欢的是:“我说了算”。

Espinoza said, "It makes me believe I have the power to choose the right thing."

埃斯皮诺萨说:“这让我相信我有能力选择正确的事物”。

AileyCamp was created in 1989 in Kansas City, Missouri by world-famous dancer and director Alvin Ailey. About 1,000 students in 10 U.S. states take part in AileyCamp every year. It is a free, six-week program aimed at young people in financial need or who have school, social or family difficulties.

艾利训练营于1989年由世界著名舞蹈家和导演阿尔文·艾利在密苏里州堪萨斯城创立。每年约有1000名来自美国10个州的学生参加艾利训练营。这是一个为期六周的免费项目,主要针对有经济需要或有学校、社会或家庭困难的年轻人。

In addition to dance, the camp introduces students to visual arts, creative writing and other communication skills. It also teaches them how to eat well, solve conflicts and become leaders, notes the camp's website.

除了舞蹈,夏令营还向学生介绍视觉艺术、创造性写作和其他沟通技巧。训练营的网站指出,夏令营还教学生如何吃得好,如何解决矛盾,以及如何成为领导者。

Dianne Caroll Sales directs the AileyCamp in Atlanta, Georgia. When the camp over, the city's professional ballet company offers 10 students a full-tuition scholarship for a year of training. The scholarship can be renewed.

黛安娜·卡罗尔·萨莱斯是佐治亚州亚特兰大艾利训练营的负责人。夏令营结束后,该市的专业芭蕾舞团将提供10名学生为期一年的全额学费奖学金。奖学金可以重复获得。

Kameron Davis received one of those scholarships when he was a young man. He trained with the Atlanta Ballet for three years. Then he became a dance teacher. Davis said he does not think his mother could have paid for dance classes without the scholarship.

卡梅隆·戴维斯年轻时就曾获得该奖学金。他在亚特兰大芭蕾舞团训练了三年。后来,他成了一名舞蹈老师。戴维斯说,要不是有奖学金,他的母亲就不可能支付得起舞蹈课的费用。

Davis said children at school made fun of him when he began dancing. AileyCamp, he said, offered him a safe place and increased his confidence. Today, he enjoys giving back to the program by helping new campers build their confidence, too.

戴维斯称,他刚开始跳舞时,学校里的孩子都取笑他。他说,艾利训练营为他提供了一个安全的地方,使他更有信心。现在,他喜欢通过帮助新营员建立信心来回馈这个项目。

It's an open door to finding new things, doing new things, Davis said. "When I got to AileyCamp, it just reassured me that, 'Hey, it's okay. Everybody is different. You shouldn't be judged by what you do just because not a lot of people do it.'"

戴维斯说:“这是一扇敞开的大门,在这里,可以发现新事物、尝试新事物。我到达艾利训练营时,它让我感到放心,‘嘿,没关系。每个人都是不同的。不应该仅因为许多人都不像你那样做,你的行为就要受到批判。’”
