Dance Camps (ages 3-7)
Our fun and creative summer dance camps build special memories for years to come! Each camp includes dancing, story time, crafts and games! An informal performance will be held for parents at the end of each camp. Dancers will be divided into groups on the first day of camp so that they are placed in an appropriate class level for the duration of the camp.
What should I wear and bring to 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.
