Summer Dance Programs 2021
Updated: May 22
*updated as of the provincial announcement May 20th
Why send your kids to Summer Dance programs? Summer dance classes are a great way for experienced dancers to stay in shape in between two seasons of regular dance classes. They are also the perfect opportunity for new dancers to try out different styles for a short time and find out which style they love best! And after the year we've had, our summer dance classes will be a great way to get back into dancing together in-person!
Summer dance camps are a fun full-day experience of games, crafts, dancing and fun--a great way to make new friends and explore dance in a friendly, open environment. And Summer Intensives are an immersive experience for experienced dancers who are interested in improving their technique, exploring new ways to train and perform, and having fun while gaining confidence as performing artists.
The Owen Sound Dance Academy is offering a variety of summer dance opportunities this year, for new and experienced dancers of all ages!
