Stacks Image 823
Our Summer Dance Program is an excellent opportunity to introduce the first time student to the world of dance, as well as allow continuing dance students to strengthen their dance skills and try out some speciality classes. We look forward to working with your talented children and making this a very memorable and positive experience!

Our goal is to encourage and motivate, promote self-esteem and provide an exciting experience that allows for peer interaction while your dancer is learning and following instructions.

Students will learn Ballet,Tap, Creative Movement, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Musical Theater in the camps. This is a great opportunity to “try it all” and find out where their individual interests are in the dance world. Through combinations and exercises at the barre and on the floor, children will learn coordination, creative movement, flexibility, technique, strength, gracefulness, precision of steps, self expression and choreography. They will also be learning Musical Theater through movement and singing.

Each camp will include age appropriate crafts, activities, stories, singing and videos based on the Theme of the Week! There will be singing, dancing and fun! As the themes change, so will the experience of the camp!

Dancers will be taking a field trip to SkyZone each week to work on dance jumps.
