If your child loves to dance, check out our summer dance camps! These camps will explore many different styles of dance all in one week.

The camps for ages 6-9 years and 10-13 years will experience techniques in jazz, ballet, hip hop, lyrical, turns/technique, and contemporary styles of dance. These camps are geared towards beginner/intermediate-level students who would like to experience dance in a fun, easy going environment.
