Fairy Tale Pre-Ballet Camp

Once upon a time… there lived a little dancer who dreamed of leaping and galloping around the world, sprinkling fairy dust and glitter on all the children’s feet, to make their dancing dreams come true. 

There’s nothing better than exploring a Ballet Story theme each week in our Fairy Tale Pre-Ballet Camp. Dancers will begin their day with pre-ballet movement, while activating their imagination through reading a book, watching a professional performance, creating costumes/props, and rehearsing for their performance at the end of the week. 

A snack is provided each day. Families are invited to attend a performance held on Friday. 

Under The Sea Camp
July 8 - 12 | Ages 5 - 10 | 9 am - 4 pm | $310

All spots have been filled. Space camp still has openings!

Dive into the wonders of the ocean at our ‘Under the Sea’ camp. This magical world flowing to its own rhythm, fills the deep blue sea with underwater creatures, like sea turtles and urchins, ocean plants like seaweed and coral, and disappearing treasure like shipwrecks and gold. 

 

Explore, adventure, and unlock your imagination by dancing and moving your body with marine magic, aquatic arts and crafts, oceanic games, and an unforgettable dance party to close out the week, that captures the essence of life beneath the waves.
