Summer Camps & Intensives


Runs from 9 AM to 5 PM and is a combination of ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, acro, musical theatre, modern and crafts.  On each Friday we put on a small production of the dances we learn during the week.  Our dance camps are a lot of fun, very educational and have more one-on-one training than regular season classes. It is also a great chance to try different dance styles.


August 13-17 CDA competitive students come from 10:00 to 4:00 to participate in a number of technique strengthening dance activities. These students focus on dance technique, choreography, repertoire and stretch and strength. Guest artists will teach inventive choreography. This is for the serious focused dancer who wants to get ready for the 2018/2019 competitive season.
