What should my child wear and bring for camp?
For summer camps, dancers should wear clothes in which they can move freely. Dance attire is welcome, but not required. If a student wishes to wear dance attire, we recommend referring to our School Handbook so that you are able to purchase the uniform that will be used for the upcoming school year. Street shoes are not allowed on our dance floors, so if your dancer does not have dance shoes, socks are best. Dancers should bring a water bottle and a healthy snack that is easy to eat quickly and not too messy. Due to allergies amongst some of our students, we ask that any food brought to camp does not include peanuts. Masks will be required when indoors.
**A Note About the Birds, Butterflies, & Ballerinas Camps at Jenkins Arboretum: This camp will be held both indoors and outdoors. Therefore, for this camp we recommend wearing socks and sneakers and sunscreen with your activewear. Masks will be required when indoors, but we will be taking mask breaks when outdoors.
What should be worn for workshops & intensives?
Normal dance attire is perfect. If you are unsure of what to wear for a specific style of dance, you can check out our School Handbook. We also recommend bringing a water bottle and a light snack. Due to allergies amongst some of our students, we ask that any food brought to dance does not include peanuts. Masks will be required when indoors if your dancer is not vaccinated.
