Storybook Ballet Camp Details

Join us this summer for our Storybook Ballet Summer Camp. The curriculum is created to encourage age-appropriate creativity, musicality, and physicality. Your child will dance and have fun with an emphasis on the foundations of ballet. During Week 1, dancers will learn ballet choreography, pantomime, and basic ballet steps by exploring the storybook ballet, Beauty and the Beast. In the second session, during Week 2), the dancers will follow a similar program, but learn about the ballet, Alice in Wonderland. The campers will be divided into groups by age/ability. Campers may sign up for one session both.
