Students 3 to 5 years
Taking their first steps in developing musicality and coordination, Preschool Camps are a great way to introduce the youngest movers to dance and performance. Activities include creative movement, tap, costume building, arts & crafts and storytelling.

Students 6 to 8 years
There are as many dance forms in the world as there are styles of music, and young dancers have a wonderful opportunity to try out a selection of styles as diverse as Ballet, Jazz, and Tap while learning about dance history and improving coordination in these week-long camps. Mix it up for a week of fun!

These camps run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., so pack a lunch!

    Summer camps are a bit more relaxed than our school year and therefore does not have a dress code. Dancers are welcome to wear leotard and ballet slippers or t-shirt and shorts; be comfortable and prepared to have fun!

Summer dance workshops are the most important resource a young dancer has when they want to see strong improvement in a relatively short time. A one-week full-day camp can be as beneficial as three months of evening classes in the regular year. We will be offering half- and full-day workshops to dancers of all levels, with familiar faces and special guest teachers.
