Make new friends, deepen existing friendships, learn new dance moves and improve your skills!

Families are invited to join us at the end of each week to see a demonstration of what we learn.
Wacky Wednesdays will incorporate dance in the styles of Hip Hop and Acro/Tumbling. This day is all about exploring rhythm and movement. Dancers will explore the foundational elements of Hip Hop, will learn about what influenced this style historically and what makes it important as a cultural expression. They will also work on flexibility, strength building and acrobatic influenced dance tricks. Dancers will work with teachers who will expose them to the styles of Hip Hop and Acro/Tumbling and will learn choreography in each discipline. Additionally, day campers will engage in arts and crafts projects to support their study of Hip Hop and Acro…imagine creating your own personal record, bedazzling a super cool accessory for your hip hop dance, building an affirmation dream catcher with your dance goals and more.
Throw Back Thursdays is an opportunity to explore the past several decades of music and movement. This day will incorporate exposure to some of the most famous and well known genres of music and dance that influence dance as we know it today. Each decade has gifted us new music and new styles of movement and they are fun to explore and add to our dance tool belt. Each Thursday dancers will work with teachers who will bring a love and excitement for a dance inspired flashes from the past. Dancers will learn choreography in the style of the chosen decade. Additionally, day campers will engage in arts and crafts that will complement the decade they are exploring. This could include accessory creation, costume practicums, video and the study of the most influential musicians and dancers of the chosen decades.
