The Children’s Summer Camp is a weeklong program for your child to learn, grow and have fun. Students will take classes in Pre-Ballet, Creative Movement, Creative Dramatics and Arts and Crafts. Each week revolves around a central theme, which is a classic ballet story. Every dance lesson, craft, and activity is related to the theme of the week. Your child will learn developmental motor skills, relationship and teamwork skills as well as creative thinking and problem solving skills. Each day is from 12pm- 3pm and includes a snack-time, movie-time and story-time. The students will take home a scrapbook of all activities at the end of the week. On the last day of the Camp, parents and guests are invited to watch a performance.
