SUMMER DANCE PROGRAMS 2022
Updated: Jun 22
Here is all of the information you need about summer dance programs at the Academy this year! Continue reading to learn more about the programs we're offering this year, or go to our registration page to find out how to register!
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! 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.
Summer Dance Registration nights are coming up soon, so mark your calendars! Wednesday, May 25th and Wednesday, June 22nd from 6pm-8pm! What kind of dance are you interested in this summer? The Academy is offering a wide variety of evening classes and exciting day camps for dancers of all ages and levels! See below for more info on all summer programs!
